    My credit card won't go through and it works everywhere except in the market. What's up with this? It won't let me but any apps.

    I am having exactly the same issue. I am in Canada and use an Amex card only. Funny thing is, I have used this same card for a few Android Market purchases without any issues. But lately, every time I try to make a purchase and click on Buy, a box comes up showing my Amex card but says, "unable to use this card for purchase" and gives me an option to add another card (which I will not do).

    I have contacted Google but just get the standard canned answer, "you may not be able to purchase some apps from other countries with your card". However, I make out of country purchases all the time with my Amex card plus, many of these apps I have tried to purchase lately are from the US.

    I have never had any issues with Apple in almost 4 years. Go figure.

    The same thing happened with my Am Ex yesterday. I am also in the states. I used it with no problem at the store today. I'm just going to watch my statement to ensure that no charges were incurred in spite of the messages I received.
