Can't Authorize My Credit Card? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently tryed to purchase microsoft points VIA my xbox 360, I input all my credit card details and selected "Confirm Purchase". I then recieved an error message saying "Unable To Authorize Your Payment Method, Please Select A Different Method Or Add A New One". I've double checked my details and double checked again, then tryed adding a new credit card, and double checking that, but still, I recieve the same error message.

    Can anyone help?

  • I realize this doesn't help, but I'm in PRECISELY the same situation.

    I've tried two different credit cards as well as my Visa checking account card. I've confirmed with the issuing banks that there are no security lockouts, no where near the credit limit, and all cards are unexpired. I've successfully used all three cards with other merchants, both brick-n-mortar and online.

    But XBOX LIVE, Zune Account, and billing.microsoft.com all report the same error: cannot authorize selected payment option.

    After reporting these details to XBOX LIVE support, the response I get: "You may encounter this message if the credit card has no funds left; the credit card is already expired; the credit card is not authorized to purchase by the bank" and I should "contact your bank representative".

    Which is what I did, and reported back to XBOX LIVE support, only to get the same response yet again. -sigh-
