cannot purchase add-on

Cannot purchase a data add-on for my hotspot for the past week as I always get payment method denied, no matter what method I try.  My High school kid can program a Paypal gateway payment.  Here's the error ATT:

We are currently experiencing an issue processing payments. Please try your request again later. No other services are impacted.

Thank you for trying those steps, @michalekoller

 

At this time, we would advise that you make your payment over the phone by dialing 800.901.9878. This is a toll-free call! They can assist you with adding the data you need and processing the payment. 

 

Thank you for using AT&T Community Forums!

Not good advice on giving a credit card number over the phone.  Please open a ticket with the correct support dept to have this issue fixed.

Hi there, michalekoller! Let’s meet in a Direct Message (DM) to discuss resolving your inability to purchase that Add-on for your plan.

 

Please check your Direct Message Inbox for a message being sent to you. Look for the chat icon next to the bell icon in the upper right corner of the Forums page.

 

Also, when instances like this occur, and you're unable to complete an Add-on purchase after signing in to our online portal, there are other ways to pay including following the prompts when using our automated phone service to add or change AT&T PREPAID add-ons like messaging, data, or international long distance. You can find those details under Get or change your add-ons when you visit Add or change AT&T PREPAID add-ons.

 

Make sure to keep an eye out for the message being sent to you in the DM. We want to investigate the cause of your inability to purchase an AT&T Add-on for your mobile Hotspot.

 

Lar, AT&T Community Specialist
