Before you ask, yes my account is verified. Yesterday I could make a payment, but today I am getting this screen: http://gyazo.com/858eba750c2e943b0374eb1689a9dec1
Any tips? I do have the amount required in my paypal balance.
How about any credit cards with expired dates - that too can trigger this error.
Unfortunately the error message is generic, it may be that it's just a system glitch at that point in time. As we are a member to member help group, we don't have the resources to pin down a route cause. Just toss out some suggestions that have helped others.
