ITunes and iPod Touch “Payment was declined”


I recently bought a new iPod Touch 5 and made 3 purchases. The last app I purchased downloaded successfully onto my iPod but I never got an email receipt from the store. So I checked my purchase history and it says

"We were unable to authorize your credit card for this purchase.
Please update your billing info."

So I went to the "Billing Info" page and validated my PayPal account. Now it says

"Your PayPal transaction was declined."

I tried adding a credit card as my payment option and I get:

"Your credit card was declined. Please enter valid credit card information."

What should I do?


Best Answer

It turned out that my bank was declining the purchases. Problem solved.
