Unhappy Can Not Purchase from Google Play Store

I try to purchase an app from the Play Store and it begins the authentication process and then returns an error with the following message:

"Your payment could not be processed at this time. You may receive an email asking you to verify your account"

I check my gmail inbox and for each failed purchase I have two emails - the first is an order receipt, and the second is an order cancellation receipt.

I tried purchasing another app to eliminate the possibility of it being an issue with the developer taking payment, but received the same error.

I phoned my bank and they said they had authorized the payment, and so it must be Google having problems taking the payment.

Has anyone else experienced this?

I have never had this issue dealing with Google, however, i would probably just suggest to reboot your phone, remove the battery then restart it, otherwise like Kikenyoy has already done, get into contact with Google Customer Service.
