Question: Apple Pay Services Unavailable in Messages. Why?

I am trying to send cash to someone in Messages using Apple Pay Cash and am getting an error that says "Apple Pay Services are currently unavailable. Please try again later." I have made sure I have the updated iOS, and I have "send and receive apple cash" on in settings, valid credit cards on file, the amount isn't too high (I tried testing it with just $5), I have both wifi and cellular service where I'm at, etc. Does anyone know why this is happening?

Thanks!

iPhone X, iOS 11.2.6

For future reference, keep in mind that, when asking questions here, it is best to explain at the outset all of the steps that you have already tried. This helps to ensure that you receive the most constructive replies possible (and is also appreciated by those who may invest their time and effort in trying to help you).
