I'm getting an error message when i try to purchase game pieces using PayPal through PlayBook.
My PayPal is fine and credit card up to date. I log into PlayBook and I'm authorized,then it takes me
To PayPal where I choose buy now. After I select buy now I get this error message
"problem encountered with PayPal authorization 579024.
I have no problem purchasing apps or games only when I try to purchase game pieces for the game
Oregon Trails by Gameloft
Anyone have any idea what is going on?
Thanks in advance

This problem has been encountered by others as well. Enter the payment options by swiping down. An renter your paypal account details.
After rentering, many others have reported that their problem was recitified.

I'm not sure what you mean by swiping down. When I click on game item to purchase more money blackberry makes me log in and authenticates me. Once I'm authorized the PayPal screen pops up asking if I want to buy now. At which point do I "swipe down" and when I do what am I looking for?

when you are in the app world. From the top of the screen, swipt your finger down to see the payment options. Enter the options and save your paypal account to your ID.
After you are done with this, try purchasing the app/game.

I purchased the game last week through app world, that's not my problem. My problem is when I'm playing the game and want to purchase more money to play. That's when I get the error as mentioned above

Ok so you mean in-app purchases dont work. That's. A whole diffrent ball game. Wasn't a 30242 error by any chance?
Do in-app purchases route thru BB World, anyone?
