Help! I Can’t Purchase the Game and Expansion on the Se Store/mogstation

If you find your purchase is being canceled by Square Enix or Mogstation, chances are, you have issues with any of the below:
  1. You are not using VPN
  2. The card is used for the transaction is from the same country and has no restrictions by your bank.
  3. Ensure that the card/account being used hasn't had any previous issues with Square Enix in the past (i.e refusals)
  4. The name and shipping information on the card must be the same as those on your account. Otherwise, you will receive this error message.
If you are using Paymaya, it would be best to link it to your Paypal account before using it for any purchase.
