500 status code for 'POST /me/transactions'
I keep getting ‘500 status code for ‘POST /me/transactions’ every time I try to pay for an upgrade. What does this mean?
The blog I need help with is hollonontheloose.wordpress.com.
Below are the only accepted means of payment.
WordPress.com uses PayPal as the payment processor, and as such, can only accept payment from countries they support: https://www.paypal.com/worldwide/
If for whatever reason, they have chosen to block payment from your country, you will not be able to purchase an upgrade here unless you have a source of payment outside of your country. Note: You can buy a prepaid credit card from an approved country.
In addition to major credit cards Mastercard, VISA, American Express, Discover, and PayPal https://www.paypal.com/worldwide/ WordPress.com can accept echecks and some debit cards.
The debit card must have a VISA or Mastercard symbol on it, and should work just like a credit card when selecting the VISA or Mastercard option on the payment form, even though it’s a debit card.
More about echecks here:
NOTE: Payments for WordPress.com subscriptions are recurring you will still need a card connected to your PayPal account, even if you have funds in that account. See also: Payments Using a PayPal Account
Hi @thehollon, hmm, it sounds like there was a temporary problem. Were you able to process the transaction after that?
A few hours later, it worked just fine.
Thanks for the update. I’ll go ahead and close this out.
