    If you cannot purchase apps even you already added a credit card

    It was my first time attempting to purchase an app from the Android Maekerplace and I added a credit card, AMEX specifically.
    When I attempted to purchase the app, the credit card that I added was greyed out and the OK was also greyed out.

    Upon doing some googling, it appears that depending on your credit card issuer's policy it will not allow you to purchase items that are not in US OR CAD dollars. In my case, I was attempting to purchase the thumbs keyboard which was in € currency.
    The way to workaround it (for those who are wondering) is to:
    (a) Use another credit card
    (b) Call your credit card issuer to allow a foreign purchase - one time authorization.
    I actually like this idea, prevents fraud.

    I just use a prepaid Visa for all my app purchases. That way, even if something hinky happened I wouldn't stand to loose much.
