Bug Description

I first noticed this when trying to purchase Oil Rush from the software centre. I put the Mastercard credit card details in but it failed when submitting with the reason 3DSECURE. I tried again just in case I had input the details wrong but got the same message so I thought the 3DSECURE must be actually blocking the purchase. I then tried another card, this time it was a Visa debit card but I got the same message. I then went back to the original card and changed the currency to euros and it went through first time.

Later Itried to add more space to my Ubuntu one account and got an error when submitting payment but this gave no reason. Remembering my earlier issue I changed the currency to euros and it worked first time again.

Using euro worked for me, and hey -- a 1% exchange fee by my bank isn't too much. I thought I wasn't going to be able to purchase the game until I saw this bug. It would be nice, though, if it worked in USD.

Yep, USD failed for me. Euro works.
