Invalid Payment - Mapping a domain I already own

  1. I am trying to purchase domain mapping for a domain i have already purchased on dreamhost. I am attempting to use an AMEX card and have received the error several times.

    Thanks for the help!

    The blog I need help with is

  2. What is the error message you receive?
    Can your try another payment option?

    Below are the only accepted means of payment. uses PayPal as the payment processor, and as such, can only accept payment from countries they support:

    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 or pay in Bitcoin.

    In addition to major credit cards Mastercard, VISA, American Express, Discover, and PayPal 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: also accept Bitcoin for payment of certain upgrades

  3. The message is invalid payment. I have tried an AMEX card and a VISA card and also Paypal - all the same invalid payment message. I am from Canada so the payment should be allowed. This has been occurring for 3 days now
