Thread: How to buy from Microsoft's Marketplace?

    Default How to buy from Microsoft's Marketplace?

    There are two choices when purchasing from Microsoft's website.

    What is the difference between 'Buy and Download' and 'Buy'?

    Thank you.

    Buy means you will own the addon, but you can download it later (I’m not really sure why you would want to though)
    Buy and download.. downloads it straight away

    I have used the 'Buy' choice when purchasing more than one item at a time. Lets me complete my shopping and then start the downloading while I do other things at home.

    It allows you to buy a game on one PC, maybe your laptop, and download it to your gaming PC later.
