    Having the same issue here... very frustrating since it seems there's no answer to that. I tried removing the Payment Metthod, but I don't see any "None" button to select.

    When it tells "payment method was declined" I think that's because the limit of your credit card have been reached...

    My problem was solved by opening a PayPal account.  I skipped the credit card BS all together.

    I have tried this many times and it didn't work! I'm really frustrated and feel sorry to buy this ipad it's not a cheep investment and I have no time to spend online to find how to solve this issue anymore, this was the first "and is the last" thing I'm buying from Apple. I should have followed the Bestbuy rep advice and gone with Galaxy tap.

    My Visa Debit card had been working until I got an updated one with new expiration and security code - I tried to change through my phone - did not work - I HAD TO OPEN ITUNES ON MY PC AND LOG INTO MY ACCOUNT TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM - it showed where I had multiple attempts to charge my card and had failed - and allowed me to enter the new card information to process.

     

    Works fine now.

    I'm having the same problem. After reading through this thread and trying the idiotic fixes suggested to people by apple support, I've come to a reasonable conclusion: Apple obviously don't want our money and would prefer that we jailbreak and use installous to pirate everything instead!

    WELL DONE HIDDEN DRAGON

    I have read and have tried most of all nine pages with many comments

    and must say yours is working perfectly fine.

    I have made new apple ID trough computer and itunes with clicking payment method NONE

    and finished story.

    To all that still have this problem go with it

    it is working.

     

     

    The Hidden Dragon

     

    Hi guys I had the same issue & I e-mail them.. in a few hours some one from the support replay to my e-mail & send me the instruction.. and finally it works!! find the replay below

     

    Mr. Hidden Dragon, don't lose heart, since you are ready to buy from the App Store please know that you can create an account without a credit card. To create an account without a credit card, iTunes Gift Card, Gift Certificate, allowance, or code, follow the steps in this article:

     

    Create an iTunes App Store account without a credit card

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2534

     

    If in the future, you would like to use a credit card on your account please know that Apple is not able to troubleshoot or determine the specific cause of a card being not being accepted. When a credit card is not accepted for any reason, this is a sign that something needs to be addressed by the issuer of the card being used. Your bank or credit card company will be happy to help you troubleshoot the error. Once this is resolved, please follow these steps with your bank or credit card company to troubleshoot the issue:

     

    1. Contact your bank or credit card company and ask to speak with the fraud/security department.

     

    2. Tell the representative that your security code is being rejected. Ask them to review your account to see what might be preventing you from using the card to purchase from the iTunes Store. Ensure that they thoroughly review your account until they locate and resolve what is causing the issue.

     

    3. The bank or credit card company will need to remove any holds on your account. The bank or credit card company could also bypass the authorization process.

     

    Once the bank has resolved your issue, the card should work with the iTunes Store.

     

    I want the world to know how valuable you are to us here at iTunes and personally thank you so very much for choosing the iTunes Store. I appreciate your business.

    FIX FOUND! For me anyway.

     

    I kept getting an "invalid security code" message when I tried to download from the app store. Checked it on iTunes on my Mac and had the same problem although it was in fact my security on the back of my VISA DEBIT card. Apple used to only let you make purchases with an account that had $0.01 in funds. Now they changed it so you have to have at least $10.00 I think. I read it in this thread so I transferred money to my account (I only had $4.00 in my account) and it worked! So it's not a bank issue or even an Apple "issue", but I guess it's just new policy from Apple. Or it's not new, but it's the first time I've had the problem. But it worked!

    i had the same problem where i said my security code is invalid, i tried something i saw on this site and it worked!

    log onto itunes on your computer, then update ur current credit card info with spaces inbetween the 4 sets of numbers then put in ur exp date and security code and all that info. im not guaranteeing this will work but it did for me. hope it helps!

    i had the same problem... but i think to solve this issue... you need to call ur credit card company and verify the latest purchase you made from the apple store. you will notice a hold amount on your credit card balance (it's the amount of the app you purchased, and it's not yet taken from your card). In my case, i purchased and installed a gps app called NAVIGON, and it hasnt posted on my card yet. after that i got the "INVALID SECURITY CODE" when i try to install updates on any of my apps. i called the bank and verify the amount, and the problem got fixed. hope this helps.
