Bitcoin Cash at Microsoft
Currently, the option is available only to customers in the US.
You can now use Bitcoin Cash to INSTANTLY add credit to your Microsoft account!!! I selected Redeem Bitcoin, chose Bitcoin Cash, and used the Copay wallet on my phone to scan the QR code on my laptop, and send the payment.
The payment was received INSTANTLY and immediately added the $10 credit to my Microsoft account.

In January, Microsoft announced that it would no longer work with Bitcoin due to high fees, but payment processing BitPay, processing crypto-currency transfers of the company, could convince it, apparently suggesting as an alternative Bitcoin Cash.
Recently, Bitcoin Cash support has been activated for 100,000+ BitPay clients.
Merchants who decided to accept payment through Bitpay can receive funds for their own crypto-currency wallets or automatically transfer them to dollars. BitPay does not specify which preference is given to which option. The last time official data was published in 2014. Then, 5,000 customers agreed to receive crypto currency without conversion to Fiat.
