    I am trying to buy XenForo but every time I go buy it PayPal gives me this error.
    I just used the same card to buy the url and host so I dont understand why it's not working.

    The easiest solution is to use a different card. Paypal also lets you connect your bank account to your Paypal account.

    Otherwise you can use the contact form to arrange some other payment:


    But that takes time.

    The only way I got PayPal to work for XenForo was to setup a full account. They wanted all kinds of information and it took close to a week for them to "approve" to make purchases with my American Express card.

    Crazy that any business, especially a struggling startup, would let PayPal prevent sales.

    Really? Ok I'll try it thanks, and yeah that is crazy.

    Edit: Woohoo it worked when I signed up! Thanks, BGL!

    There are lots of things about Xenforo and the behaviour of the people behind it that are, frankly, crazy. Still, there is never a dull moment and the software speaks for itself :)
