Why won’t my Microsoft Store let me buy anything?
The primary reason why Microsoft is not allowing you to buy anything is because you have a problem with your payment details. If you use a credit card, make sure the credit card is valid. It is suggested to check the expiry date of your credit card and the name printed on the card.
