How to fix Error when Placing Order for Minecraft
There are a few fixes that you can try to fix any errors when trying to place an order on Minecraft. Here are some of the fixes.
Make Sure Chrome/Browser is Up-to-Date
In some cases, Mojang/Minecraft will not allow you to make an order if you’re on an older browser. To update Chrome, you can visit our guide on How to Update Google Chrome, which should help you with this issue, as well as many other issues and security issues you might face.
International Bank Transfers/Denied by your Bank
In some cases, your bank or payment provider may stop a transaction from going through if they believe it to be malicious, or otherwise fraudulent. In most cases, this can cause issues with your debit or credit card, but you should receive a text from your bank if this has happened. If this list doesn’t help, try calling your bank to see if they can see any restrictions on your account.
Clear Session Cookies (or Use Incognito)
In some cases, users have reported that clearing their Session Cookies or buying Minecraft in Incognito mode can often help this issue. Clearing your session cookies is super simple, and only takes about 30 seconds. Otherwise, you can press Ctrl+Shift+N and try to complete the transaction again – this should help with any issues from your side.
Contact Mojang Support
If you’ve tried everything else, and you’re still struggling to purchase Minecraft, then it might be best if you contact Microsoft or Mojang support. In some cases, this is the only way to get direct help, as if there is anything wrong with your account, payment options or with Mojang themselves, they’ll be able to give you dedicated and tailored support.
Buy Minecraft as a Redeemable Code
