    I'm not sure if this is a stupid question but why enter card details directly to BlackBerry World instead of using PayPal's service. Any plus and minuses?

    What error message are you getting when it doesn't work?
    Generally speaking it is important to make sure that your credit card information is added exactly and in full. One spelling mistake or omission can cause transactions to fail now or sometime in the future. CC fraud checking techniques can be very strict...

    If it's the first time you've tried setting it up, make sure that everything is entered properly. Also, make sure that the billing address matches the address you entered as that makes a big difference. All of the information needs to match.
    And, if it was all set up and working fine before and seemed to just stop working all of a sudden, contact BlackBerry. There should be a support number or email somewhere on their website. I had something like that happen to me and I wasn't able to ever figure out why it happened. BlackBerry was able to reset things from their side and I reentered my information and all was back to normal.

    Not everybody wants PayPal. I personally won't use them because they are effectively acting like an unregulated bank. Any business that let's itself get dependent on PP for a large portion of its business is taking a huge risk. PP can and does frequently freeze merchant accounts for fairly minimal reasons. A few weeks without cash flow is enough to be terminal.

    Twice I have bought products on the Internet from companies that have used PP as a credit card processor. Both times the transaction failed for no real reason. PP didn't contact me nor the merchant. I had to notice and then call PP to enable the transaction. Fair play, on both occasions their call centre was decent and resolved the situation immediately, but seriously, I can't be bothered with that. Never again.

    Likewise, after eBay started making PP compulsory for sellers, I stopped using eBay (privately, for clearing out unwanted stuff).

    Actually, this is sounding a bit like a rant. Maybe time to stop.

    As I mentioned above, I double-, triple-, and quadruple-checked my credit card info. I confirmed with my bank that's that is the info they have on file and they are not declining the charges. Yet I continue to get the same error message as the OP. I guess the next thing is to contact BB, but I bet I'll have to go through Verizon first. Sigh.

    Do region settings have any bearing on the success/failure of a credit card transaction on BlackBerry world.


    I'm in India and have set Canada as my region for the obvious reason of accessing bbm channels without a hitch.

    Not sure if region can interfere in a card related purchase. Tried two cards. Both issued in India but the banks are ex india. Did not work.

    Paypal dont work in india. Debit card dont work for an international purchase.
