Allow Microsoft Money / Account Currency as a Payment Option for 360 Titles

If i try to buy any content or games via the xbox store on the xbox website it charges directly to my creditcard even though I have sufficient funds in my Microsoft Account.
It should either give me the option to use my Microsoft account or automatically charge my account in the first instance.
Paying with Microsoft money is currently only possible when purchasing via the console.

    Seriously. Fix your store Microsoft!

    You go on and on about backwards compatibility yet limit ways that your customers can purchase the previous gen titles (ie: can't use Microsoft account balance)

    Hell, even including a way to download demos for Xbox 360 games onto the Xbox One then allowing us to purchase the full version via the demo could work in a round about way. (I know this because I loaded up an Xbox 360 on the Xbox One and was given an option to buy DLC using my MS account balance because it was emulating the 360)

    3 Years, front page, still not a thing they seem to be fixing! It's incredibly frustrating that on one hand i cannot get my Xbox 360 games on the console since i dare to go out of the country and the region lock error 80150017. No matter! I can still buy them on and Xbox One right? Oh look it NEEDS to be paid with a credit card? So all the money on my account is worthless? Wish they at least tried looking on these "user voice" posts...

    Exactly the same problem here and i already owned the xbox 360 title Oblivion with a bunch of expansion packs however there were a few big ones that i got by buying a hard copy of a expansion pack which funny enough no longer works...seems they made Oblivion backwards compatible but not the old Expansion i'm sitting here staring at a downloadable content which i can't pay for with the Microsoft money...I don't feel like using a credit card to re-buy a couple of old expansion packs.

    It's the 23rd of December and they still haven't fixed this issue. I been trying to purchase Star Wars KOTOR and Sonic Adventure 2 since yesterday and nothing. And the card I have, they won't take it as a credit card. Fuuu...

    If you insist on purchasing a 360 back compat game then seek a friend who still owns the platform and make a purchase through the 360 marketplace, after so you should see the game downloading on your Xbox queue or ready to install.

    You can use credit if you do it on 360. The redemption systems are not currently connected and won’t be till they do the 360 migration to the one XBL backbone that’s in the works.
