    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?

    Yes I'm having the same problem. Over 2 days and no reply from their customer service.

    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.
