Solutions

To resolve this problem, try the following solutions:

Solution 1: Check your billing address

Make sure the billing address for your Xbox LIVE account matches the billing address used by your credit card company. Also, the credit card must be from a country that matches the country associated with your Xbox LIVE account. To change the billing address for your Xbox LIVE account, see Change your Xbox LIVE account information.

Note You cannot change the country associated with your Xbox LIVE account after your account is created.

If you keep getting the error, try the next solution.

Solution 2: Contact your bank or financial institution

The Xbox LIVE purchase might have failed for the following reasons:

  • The credit card has not been activated.
  • The credit card was declined due to insufficient funds.
  • The credit card cannot accept online purchases or automatic billing.
  • The credit card company is intentionally preventing the card from being used.

Contact your credit card company or bank and make sure that the card you’re using was activated, that it has available funds, and that the transaction isn’t being blocked for some reason.

If you keep getting the error, try the next solution.

Solution 3: Try your purchase again later

The Xbox LIVE purchase might be blocked for one of the following reasons:

  • Too many recent declined purchase attempts.
  • The Xbox LIVE account or the payment option is being used from an incorrect location.
  • The payment option you provided may have a violation for non-payment that’s preventing it from being used for new purchases.

Wait and try the transaction again in 24 to 48 hours. When lots of purchase failures occur, this can prevent transactions from being processed until no purchase attempts have been made for a while (usually 24 to 48 hours).

If you keep getting the error after 48 hours, try the next solution.

Solution 4: Use an Xbox gift card if available

Alternatively, you can buy an Xbox gift card from a retail location and redeem it for Xbox LIVE purchases.

Note Not all purchases support Xbox gift cards. Before purchasing an Xbox gift card, make sure that you can purchase the item you want with it.

If you keep getting the error code message, contact Xbox Support.
