Windows 11 Microsoft Store has no support for Business or School accounts?

So we have upgraded one of our company pc's and we are now running Windows 11 Enterprise, runs pretty good.

Now we want to use the Microsoft Store with one of our existing business accounts (Corporate Office365 account) to download or install or purchase new apps for Windows specifically for this computer that have to be purchased from the Microsoft Store.

The Windows 11 Microsoft Store shows a notification when you logon that there is no support in the store for business or school accounts, only personal accounts like Gmail, Yahoo or Outlook.com accounts.

I've been browsing the web for some time but did they really remove the option to log into the Windows Store using business accounts? This pretty much would make this computer useless for us, we might have to go back to Windows 10 if there is no workaround. We could create a new account using outlook.com but how is someone supposed to install a Windows Store app that has been previously purchased in a business account? Are we missing something?

** Is it correct to say that the Windows Store in both Windows 10 and 11 don't support business accounts at all? **
