Last week, I got problem with my purchase at Apple’s App Store. I didn’t tried to purchased any paid apps after that. Today, I tried to purchase something on my iPad. I was curious whether this problem had been sorted or not. And, it’s back to normal now. Fixed!
Few days ago, I heard that some friends complained about their Apple ID. It had something to do with payment/billing info. I told them that I had my account work without any issues. I also joined some discussion groups, and one of them were also discussing about this. Mine was working great. But, not until today, when I decided to purchase something from my iPad.
I’m using Visa.
My last transaction was made on my iPad on October 31, 2012. It went as I expected. So, it had been a week since my last purchase. I use the same billing details since I purchased my first app for my devices (MacBook Pro, iPhone 4, and New iPad).
After asking for confirmations from other friends, they’re all using Visa. I also searched for more details, the problem was solved after changing the credit card to Master Card. I’m not lucky for this since I only have Visa right now. I am sure that I have no problem with my card. After my last purchase, I still make transaction using it.
There’s also a long discussion on this issue at Apple Support Communities, and it seems that Visa users only need to wait to get the problem sorted. Too bad.
