    I had the same issue - set up your account via your PC instead, you'll probably find it works fine then.

    There was a thread yesterday where a number of us had the exact same issue.

    You've also entered the credit card details into your Google Checkout account via PC? That's what caused the errors on my phone.

    I have been having the same problem, It's an absolute joke! How are you supposed to get the most out of android if you can't even manage to purchase apps.

    I'm not getting hit with any conversion charges. I've using an MBNA UK Visa credit card. What are you using, Ten10? You scared the hell out of me!

    I had the same problem. I then made a Google Checkout account using my PC, setup a Credit Card on to that account, then used the phone to purchase.

    Sucks that you HAVE to use Google Checkout to purchase. Especially as I've got a fortune sitting in my PayPal account

    I'm using a Visa electron as it's the card I use for online shopping and what not. The charge is purely down to your bank / card issuer what their basic fee is for handling foreign currency. If you've brought anything recently you might need to double check your statements for any handling charges. If you don't have any consider yourself lucky.
