Last week I was attempting to buy Borderlands 2 Season pass on GMG. I tried PayPal, Visa and Mastercard - all were denied. So I opened a support request to ask why, and the response I got was:
"I am sorry to hear about the issues you have had with making payments on our site. I have made some amendments to your account so can you please try to make this purchase again.
I tried again, and payment went through. Then over the weekend I tried to pre-order Bioshock, and the same thing happened. I reopened the support request, and got the following reply:
"I've made further amendments and you should be able to make purchases as expected in future. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
So it seems to be account related, not what you are using to pay. Maybe it's U.S. thing?
Anyway, I haven't tried since. Good luck!
