    There seems to have been an error initializing or updating your transaction. Please wait a minute and try again or contact support for assistance.

    Anyone had this error before? Fairly frustrating, tried in and out of browser.

    Any advice?

    p.s also tried paypal.

    This happened to me once when I didn't have enough money in my account, try using a different credit card. If you definitely have enough money then just contact support it may just be that you have to wait a while.

    I had this when i tried to buy terraria back when it came out, and now i'm having it with other games. Thing is i can't remember how i fixed it when i bought terraria :S Any chance anymody has since found out how to fix it? The previous posts weren't very helpful... :p

    Im getting the same problem even before I get to enter my payment info, have been trying for two days.
    Im trying to buy a 2 pack of dead horde, so I can make a LP and give a code out to a lucky sub.

    You'd have more luck posting this on the Steam user forums, however, make sure all your details are correct and that you have sufficient funds.

    how is that in any way relevant?

    EDIT:
    That was to Hazza_h, i've seen a few forums of people with the same problem but nobody seems to have an answer.
    I've checked, all of my details are defiantly correct :/
