Error ID 30252 when trying to purchase apps (both paypal and credit card)

On PlayBook AppWorld, when trying to purchase an app, I get the following error:


"There is a problem with your credit card authorization. Please try again or visit BlackBerry World Support for more information. (Error Id: 30252)"


I'm 200% sure my credit card details are correct - I have used it several times today and know there is plenty of credit available on it. Have tried entering the card 3 times now.


I have also tried PayPal, and I got through to authorizing with my paypal password and have recieved the "You have signed up for preapproved payments" email from PayPal. I guess getting that email means I definitely did enter my password correctly. But it gives me a "Problem encountered with PayPal authorization. (Error: 30252)"


So, same error code with both credit card and paypal. Serching the knowledgebase for 30252 yields zero results. Help??

I've got the same issue using three different credit cards. Help!
