  • Hello Matiur,

    • You may use credit cards or debit cards to pay for your subscription.
    • We accept VISA, MasterCard, and in some markets, American Express and Discover.
    • We are unable to accept credit or debit cards that use chip and PIN security, such as VISA VSDC (Visa Smart Debit/Credit), MasterCard MChip, American Express AEIPS, and JCB J Smart.
    • We are unable to accept prepaid cards, ATM bank cards, direct bank account information (wire transfers, etc.)

    If you still need assistance please contact developer support.

  • It is not possible for a student to obtain a credit card in my country. There should be an option for us to upload our government issued ID card as a proof of identification and also to check if we meet the age requirement. There are many of my friends who are not able to upload apps to windows store because of this problem.
