Direct debit on Xbox 360

My Xbox 360 used to let me add or modify my direct debit account. Why did that stop working?

A mandatory update was applied to Xbox 360 on or about December 11, 2013, that removed the ability to add or manage direct debit accounts on Xbox 360. These changes were applied as part of Microsoft compliance with the EU’s Single European Payment Area regulations.

To complete these tasks, go to the Microsoft Account Commerce website.
