Users can pay for Xbox Live using credit cards, prepaid credit cards or a PayPal account. They can add or manage payment options through their Xbox Live account settings on any Internet-connected device or via the console itself.
The Xbox Live annual subscription gives Xbox owners access to online multiplayer gaming, Internet Explorer on their TV sets and other special offers. Furthermore, Xbox One users gain access to Skype, OneGuide and SmartMatch. While Xbox 360 users can add PayPal as a payment option through the console, Xbox One users can only do so online. The following steps describe how to add payment options online.
- Visit live.com and sign in to the Microsoft account associated with the Xbox Live membership.
- Under the "Billing" section, choose "Payment Options."
- Select "Credit Card" or "PayPal" under "Add Payment Option" and follow the prompts on the website.
