I'm trying to buy an app that's $12.99, but only have about $4 in my Microsoft Account.

When I try to buy using the account, it says my balance is too low and the transaction ends there.

Can't Buy Item

Is there a way to add more money to it, or to split the payment with credit card?


I think you can't split the payment but sure you can add a credit card as a payment option. You need to go to your wallet app.

    I got the Microsoft Account money from Bing Rewards (see here and here). There was already a credit card, as well as my phone account in the wallet. Feb 11 '13 at 2:19
  • So you can switch the payment option to credit card, right? Feb 11 '13 at 10:57
  • @VictorCanova That's right. Feb 11 '13 at 10:59
