Hi.

Ive had this problem for a month or so now and ive tried reinstalling the play store, clearing caches, clearing the framework data, clearing store data and still I am unable to purchase on my phone.

This wouldnt be a problem normally since I still can buy apps and send them to the phone on a computer from play.google.com

However some games that have ingame content requires that you buy it on the phone.

When I try to purchase any app on the phone I get "Error. An error occured. Please try again".

Well I tried again aprox 17 trillion times and the same error always shows up.

Ive googled about the problem but havent found a solution.

Thanks in advance for any help.

My problem is that I can't purchase anything. Somewhere I read that Wiping would "solve" it. Thats not really practical is it now. Anyway I wiped a month ago due to some kernel setting i messed up and the Bug/Error appeared instantly or as soon as I tried to purchase my first app. Could be that it would have worked for a while after fresh install but dunno.

And wiping the phone to buy something off the market kinda beats the purpose. If Id have to wipe every single time I want to purchase something

To specify even further
It is not app-specific.
My CreditCard is fine and is working.
Rom is NovaHD RC22-41

As I mentioned in my post I have tried this "fix" without any help.

uninstall the current play store update it would roll back to the old market . then try purchasing from market it will definately work . if not then update again to the latest play store and then you could purchase . do click thanks .

I also have this problem.

I am using NovaHD RC22-41 now, but I have had this problem ever since I started using this ROM (at around RC10).

Same story as nuggeo. Full wipe several times, and cleared Play Store cache didn't help me.

Short update on the problem.

Ive cleared data/cache on Play Store and Google services Framework multiple times.
Uninstalled Play Store, Reflashed Gapps, removed my account, readded my account. Praid to the Google Gods and hold both fingers and toes crossed and still no.

Currently im getting an error code ( thats a first )

Error processing purchase [DF-BPA-13].

Quick googling showed some people with the same issue but not with a solution that worked for me or a lot of other people.

Any tips appreciated
