Last night I tried to buy 500 MS Points with my paypal which is linked to my Xbox Live account. I got the following error message when I was confirming the payment:
Your payment instrument could not be authorized. Please contact your provider, or try a different payment option.
I tried re-adding my paypal account to my gamertag with no sucess. There is no issue with my credit card or bank account as I do not have a credit card, money is available in my paypal account. The address on my paypal matches the one on my Live account. I've searched Google and the forums here for hours, looking for a soloution but every solution that has been mentioned does not work. I used my Paypal last week to purchase points for DLC with no issues at all. I know of several other people who currently having the same problem right now, so this is just not me. Clearly there is something wrong with how Paypal and Xbox Live work together. Will this be fixed? I'm not calling customer support, because they do not know how to speak english, or barely know how to, and I don't have time to mess around with them.
