I seem to be locked out of my wallet funds, HELP!!

For some stupid reason i am locked out my wallet funds, WHAT IS GOING ON?!??!?! I am trying to purchase Hard Reset and when i get to the pay screen i get this:

This payment method is currently unavailable for use. Please contact support for assistance or select another payment method for your purchase and try again.

Has anyone seen this before????? I have purchased a game or two already with this same money in my wallet, why am i locked out??!?!

Be patient...servers are all over the place right now. I was able to buy Legend of Grimrock just fine via wallet funds, but then immediately after that I couldn't even get the store to load for 10+ minutes.

If you're still having the problem in 2-3 hours (servers should probably settle down a bit by then), then open a Steam support ticket.

I glanced at all the sales, Now I go to work, and I'll have a smooth purchasing experience when I come home at 11pm .

Just be patient and wait till after dinner, the sales aren't going anywhere .

These forums need a facepalm emoticon. As I said in my first post...if you continue having this problem even after the servers settle down a bit, open a Steam support ticket.

The forum rabble most likely can't help you. Steam Support can.

This is one of the downsides of the SEALs; STEAM servers always get hammered. Just have to wait a few hours.

Pro-Tip: stop refreshing the storepage!

I understand again BUT you don't seem to understand this is my money that Valve is withholding at this point, that is BULL. And i partially created this thread to get the word out and i already have opened a support ticket.

Well there are flash sales people might lose out on.

I hope Batman Arkham City gets picked, I want it for $10.!

I'm locked out too btw, Paypal, Wallet, and Credit Card!
