Purchase Problems
« on: January 30, 2024, 05:54:47 am »

I just tried a couple of times to upgrade my master licence, but supplying my gmail address and using the same password as I have on the forum... and Paypal declined twice due to 'international regulations' with not other explanation, after researching it can occur for services related to gambling, alchol, adult entertainment, etc etc...

Are you having trouble with Paypal payments lately - perhaps they think you are an online casino? I am in Australia buying a software service which should come at no surprise to them. ? Weird.

Windows prevents the upgrade from running but doesn't identify what it's blocking.  I wasted two installs.

I still can't process the upgrade - it goes all the way through then Paypal says "declined to comply with international regulations"

its a Paypal thing but now I am stuck...

Are you using a VPN?  It seems that they think you're in a sanctioned country.

Try another browser?

No VPN running and I just tried on another platform (Linux), different machine where I know Paypal has a cookie keeping me logged in as I have used it on Amozon / ebay etc... and I got the same result flash up after it goes through 'we recognise you on this device' ... end result 'transaction declined to comply with international regulations'.. the url of the error suggests it is based on 'key&merchant name'

I'm at a loss?

Canot contact anyone live at Paypal.?

David,
Do you have a Windows machine you can try?  You just need your Registration Code.  You'll get a new one that you can then use on any machine.

That would eliminate our server and your IP address as the problem.  We're not seeing many Paypal problems at the moment.

There are a lot of foolish "security" measures on the Internet now and it can sometimes make life more difficult.

We did change a digital certificate recently and that did cause some problems, but I think it's mainly done now.  Maybe something special about Linux?

Thanks for your patience.

The original problem was on a windows 10 machine, I get the same on Linux - and now I have just tried it on my S21 Android phone and I got the same result - thats on the mobile network not wifi so completely different connection. The trifecta - Windows, Linux & Android, no VPN, all the same result.

I tried to lodge a question to Paypal, all I get is the chatbot giving me the same references to look at, to understand why it's something I am doing wrong...as if, I am doing the same prcess I have done since finding MC at version 22. Then it eventually it askes - "will I Send a notification to customer service" ... Ah Yes! Then Paypal says it will "get back to me" - not holding my breath.

That sounds like it's a Paypal problem.  They just don't like your account for some reason.  Maybe the email address?  Or the bank it's connected to?  Maybe your bank could help.
