    I tried to purchase an app from the "Market" entering my credit card info. I have entered the info 5 times and still get the message "Invalid credit card." I entered the credit card info on checkout.google.com but cannot use it to purchase apps. Thanks in advance for any suggestions! WolfpackRon.

    You are entering your information on the checkout.google.com website and having problems?

    The app you are trying to purchase. Is it U.S. currency? I know some people's credit cards did not work when purchasing apps not in American dollars. Banks are trying to prevent credit fraud. I bought an app in English pounds and my bank called me the next day.

    I had a hard time trying to buy an app about a month ago....Tried it several times and it did not work with my Amex....I switched to a different card and it went through right away. If you continue to have problems, there may be an email contact on the app who can direct or guide you.:motdroidhoriz:

    I could not get Discover to work, but was able to get a Visa card to work. Thanks for the reply. WolfpackRon.
