The damn microsoft store is doing its stupid random error messages again. Has anyone sucessfully ordered one?


It was quite happy to sell me a voucher code for one, but when I put that in to order the controller it still wants a payment method for the $0, and has rejected any that I have tried so far with:


We’re having trouble processing your order. Please call us at 1-877-696-7786 so we can help you.
Error code: 30225


Before I do that, has anyone done so and had a sucessful resolution to it? Its going to shipito, which I have ordered stuff from MS to earlier without problems

How are you paying? PayPal? I find I get a similar message when I use my NZ PayPal account but works fine with my US one. That's for game purchases though.

Using my US paypal account which has some stored cash in it so shouldnt be touching the cards, and since it is a voucher that I bought I have no idea why it would be rejecting it at all.


Next I might try shipping to one of the other shipito addresses or youshop but when I got some other hardware it just sailed right thru with the same paypal account and delivery address.


Typical US retailers making life hard.
