    Why did they remove the paypal payment option on minecraft realms?


    Me and my friends had a realm but took a little break. Now we wanted to restart the realm (We are dutch this is importand information) but the only payment option is credit cards. But the problem is that here in the Netherlands and in many places in the world credit cards aren't used much so we rely on paypal and other methods. Only america uses credit cards day to day so this is a horrible disicion.

    So my question is why would microsoft do this?

    :)

    Hey Tim!

    Nice to meet you! I'm Darhyl, a fellow gamer. I'm sorry you are experiencing this. I am here to help.

    To answer your inquiry, specifically, you must have "pre-approval" from PayPal if you are going to be "selling stored value cards" which is essentially what a gift code is. Presumably, Mojang doesn't want to go through the hassle of dealing with their approval process it is understandable given the history between them and that is probably why you can't use PayPal to buy a gift code.

    If you have further inquiries or feedback you can request Mojang to add Paypal as a payment method, by submitting a ticket here on this link:

    Thank you for your time. I hope you have a great day!

    Games with gold-add credit card (why?)

    Why don't you just put in your CC or Paypal info, download the game, then remove payment options? Pretty simple "fix".

    Your payment instrument could not be authorized. Please contact your provider, or try a different payment option.

    Hello DodderyZebra798,

    I hope this helps!

    Add PayPal to your account

    To add your PayPal account as a payment option on your Xbox LIVE account, see Manage your Xbox LIVE payment options.

    Remove PayPal from your account

    To remove PayPal as a payment option on your Xbox LIVE account, see Remove a payment option from your Xbox LIVE account.

    Use PayPal as a payment option

    After you add PayPal to your account, you can use it either on Xbox.com or your Xbox 360 console. When you choose to purchase an item, select Change Payment Option and select your PayPal account. PayPal can be used for any purchase that uses currency.

    View your PayPal purchase history

    Your PayPal transactions are included in your Xbox LIVE purchase history. See Check your Xbox LIVE billing and purchase history for more
    information.

    You can also visit PayPal.com to view your PayPal transaction history.

    Troubleshoot the PayPal payment option

    If you receive an Error: 8382025C the PayPal account you are trying to add is not supported. Xbox LIVE only supports PayPal accounts that have a credit card or confirmed bank account as a funding
    source. Update your PayPal account with one of these funding sources, or try using a different PayPal account.

    Where did PayPal go?

    Update: it appears the option to use PayPal was removed from xbox.com, but not the console. Hopefully my payment goes through.

    Edit: It went through. I'd like to know why the options to use it have been completely removed from xbox.com though.
