Im trying to purchase gold with my American Express but whenever I click the American Express option, it sends to a screen where it says "Unable to process transaction." I tried all of the other options just to see what would happen and the American Express option is the only one giving problems.

Any chances your parents cancelled it when they noticed it missing?

That's AMEX telling you it's a bad investment.

Could be any number of things. Could be a type of fraud prevention mechanism. Sometimes my Visa gets declined because my bank thinks its funny business.

Use the AMEX to fund a Pay Pal account.  I found that because WG is in Russia, some of my cards just don't work (some kind of fraud prevention thing).  Pay Pal always works.

OP because its based outside the US sometimes credit cards decline due to the probability of fraud. 

Use paypal or amazon pay. 

I had the same issue. I use amazon pay to pay for premium now. no issues.

American Express has always been a Pain in the rear. It either works or it doesn't. It works if you Attach it to your Amazon Account and go Through Amazon Payments and use it that way.

Well see I thought so too. I have a Mastercard that I use for everything here, and in order to get stuff in Tanks and Ships I had to get a AMEX because Mastercard wouldnt approve transactions overseas. I have used it for like 6 months and never had a problem until now. I think it is on WGAs end because it doesnt even give me an option to enter my card info. The AMEX option seems to be broken in the prem shop.

Aside from what I said in my first response, what 84Doc04 says is correct. American Express, in my opinion, happens to be one of the worst credit cards out there. Your best bet is to open a PayPal account (it's free and owned by Ebay) and attach one of your credit cards to it. This way Wargaming never sees your credit card information and PayPal insures all purchases made through them. I have never had an issue using PayPal for multiple purchases I have made online including with Wargaming.

 

Good luck.
