I'm having this problem too
"There has been an internal error initializing your transaction. Please contact support for assistance."
But earlier, I had a different problem
"An unexpected error has occurred. Your purchase has not been completed.
Please contact Steam Support."
What can I do? (I have already submitted a ticket thing)
I just wanna get cod4
Any ideas?

Talking

I emailed steam support, here's what i got:
"Hello Peter,

Thank you for contacting Steam Support.

Your transaction has been flagged by our fraud prevention system. For the protection of the account holder,"
etc.

It was from when my account was stolen...
Just email steam and they should sort it out.

Yea, same error here. To top that, i cannot even open up a ticket, because
"Please confirm your account by following the instructions in your welcome email. If you have not received the welcome email you can have it resent."
...which is funny, cuz ive already done that, since i had to open up a ticket). And i also cannot have the welcome mail resent to my email, it just wouldnt arrive. Theres nothing wrong with the junk filter, checked those, was empty, they are just not sent. So if any mod would read this, please respont.

Id like to purchase modern warfare 2, but it just keeps bugging me with this annoying error, dont know what to do...
Other than buying the retail version, which i am tempted to do so :/

Unhappy

Same problem here, I can't buy anything, neither for me nor as gift, neither MasterCard nor Paypal. All I recieve is this error message :
There has been an internal error initializing your transaction. Please contact support for assistance.
Will this problem be settled alone or shall we go bother someone with a ticket ?

I narrowed it down to Ghostbusters. I removed it from my cart, and the purchase went on normally. Since I'm in Brazil, and this game was region restricted here before, I think Valve forgot to do something to make it work worldwide.

and in which regions is it available?
and why can we see it in the store and add it to our carts then?

Usually you can't do that when the game is not available in your region.
