    I can make purchases with my google account for items in US dollars but i get an invalid credit card when i try to purchase items like GDE which is not in US dollars? I am using AMEX.

    Any suggestions?

    I used MC to purchase something that was not USD and it works. I've been hearing that Visa is another problem with non USD apps.

    Not too sure about Amex but I'm guessing that yes, that is the problem.

    Go into your Google checkout acct and swap out the card w/ MC and that will definitely solve the problem.

    Yup, it's Amex. The Marketplace doesn't like it.

    Yeah I've found out that you can't purchase an item for non-us dollars with Discover either.
