Silicon Iceman said:YaIrishMick96 said:Any way to get the American price for the Arkham DLC other than Paypal?I believe HolyHa1fDead said that if your country doesn't take PayPal, you'll have to use a valid payment method (not easy) or gift cards.

I think what he means by that is you will need an official form of payment (like a credit card or gift card) from the origin country that you are switching your region to. For example, if you are in England and you switch your Xbox region to US, then you'll have to either have a US credit card or xbox gift card (in US dollars) to purchase the stuff for sale on XBL in USD.

(Correct me if I'm wrong, HolyHa1fDead.)
True, although I was more meaning the country you are buying from needs to accept PayPal, which I believe Brazil (as it can be very cheap) does not. But if the country you are in doesn't allow you to create a PayPal account that could also be a problem.

You can buy US gift cards in $1 amounts from here http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/pdp/Xbox-Dig... and Canada gift cards from here http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msca/en_CA/pdp/Xbox-Digi... If the country has an Amazon, then that is another easy option as they accept foregin credit cards, but you will need to add a fake delivery address (not to worry as this is not a fake billing address, and there is nothing to deliver).

An option I played around with was to use https://www.payoneer.com/. They allow you to set up a US bank account with a legitimate US credit card number, which you can then link to a PayPal account. You then top up this account, and use the credit card number to pay for digital content on the US market. This isn't the cheapest option though, you are probably better off buying digital US gift cards - however due to limitations with the 360 marketplace you can't use this credit to buy any 360 content AFIAK.

In Australia, and it seems that it's not universally true, I've found that using my PayPal account linked to a US profile ceased working quite some time ago, which led me to seek out alternatives.
