Xbox: How to add money to a wallet on an Xbox One

Reload your Xbox wallet for more of those purchases!

One convenient feature of the Xbox One is that you can add money on its e-wallet feature.

You can use it to buy digital products on your Xbox One, including new games, apps, and other digital content.

However, you can’t make it work if there’s no money in your Xbox e-wallet; you need to add-in money by spending some real money.

With that, here’s how to add money to a wallet on an Xbox One.

Add money to a wallet through your Microsoft account

The only way you can add money to your Xbox One wallet is through your Microsoft account.

  • A Microsoft gift card is your key to do so. Make sure to get it by going to the gift cards page on your Microsoft Store. You will have the choice of an Xbox gift card there.
  • Select it, and choose the amount of money you will purchase. It will be added to your cart.
  • Do the normal checkout process to settle your transaction.
  • Go to the redeem page and enter the code sent to you.

Once you got those covered, your money will now be added to your Xbox wallet in no time.
