Heeeelpp!! Microsoft Store US

Hi guys..

I'm from Argentina and wanna buy a Lumia 950 XL from the US Store and then send it at friend's home on Miami (he will come for christmas). Reading the payments methods I found this:

You can purchase items from Microsoft Store online using PayPal, or any of the following card types, provided the card has a US billing address:
American Express

My query is if I can buy the Lumia with PayPal (I don't have a CC with US address).

Thanks for your help and sorry for my bad English!

I am not from the US and have purchased items from the Microsoft Store with my visa credit card which does not have a US address.

Use your friends Miami address as your shipping and billing address and all will be fine :)
