Online gaming and digital market are bound to each other. Everything you need related to games and in-game purchases is available online and trough specific clients. We all know how well Blizzard uses online payment methods, so users can get themselves all kinds of additional content.

No one likes pay-to-win systems, but we think that Blizzard is still not crossing the line. However, even though it is a well-oiled machine, issues may occur from time to time. One that is the most common with customers is Payment Authorization error. In this article, we’ll tell you why this error occurs in the first place and how to fix it.

Battle.net client Payment Authorization Error

Check the available funds

The first step would be to check your available funds. However, you should look out not only for Battle.net Account Ballance. If you are using a debit card, make sure your funds are transferred to Battle.net balance. If you are using PayPal, login to your account and check the transfer history. Some transactions may be restrained for various reasons.

Change the payment method

If you can’t manage to pay for in-game purchases with one way and have an alternative, consider changing your payment method. For example, if the card won’t function for the unapparent reason, try another card, PayPal or Battle.net Balance. Moreover, have in mind that some transactions include additional expenses.

Check your credentials

Foremost, your credentials should be spot on. Make sure your inputs are correct and valid. If your card is near its expiration date, make sure you renew it. Your billing address should be the same as the one registered to the card in order for purchases to work.

Use a card from your region

One last advice is concerning your region. You wouldn’t be able to register the foreign card to your native region. For example, it is not possible to pay with the card that is not referring to same credentials in your account. Have that in mind.

We hope you’ll manage to overcome the given issue and purchase freely from the Battle.net shop. If you have some suggestions or additional workarounds, please share them in the comments.
