We are currently in development of Xbox (One and Series) app that has an option to buy subscription in it.

My question is: are we able to use our own payment API we are using on every other platforms: Web, PS4 and so on?

    Hello,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    are we able to use our own payment API we are using on every other platforms: Web, PS4 and so on?

    No, based on the Microsoft Store policy 10.8.1, it is mentioned that: All games and products offered on Xbox consoles are required to use the Microsoft Store in-product purchase APIs.

    So you need to use Microsoft Store API in your app as it is required.

    Thank you.
