    How to change the payment method in BlackBerry App World for BlackBerry PlayBook


    How to change the payment method in BlackBerry App World for BlackBerry PlayBook



    In addition to PayPal, you can now pay for apps and make purchases within an app using a credit card or charge them straight to your wireless bill.
    To change the payment method for BlackBerry App World on a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, complete the following:

    1. From a PC or Mac, visit appworld.blackberry.com/webstore
    2. Click the Sign In link in the upper right area of the website
    3. Enter in your BlackBerry ID username and password, then click Login
    4. This will then return to the App World Featured Items carousel. In the upper right area of the website, click My Payment Options
    5. Select the method of payment to change to, then click Next
    6. Depending on the method of payment you selected, fill in the required information to proceed
    7. A prompt will be presented to confirm the change of payment options




    Note: When visiting BlackBerry App World storefront on a Mac, a prompt will advise that some features are not compatible with this operating system. Select Continue Browsing to continue into the BlackBerry App World storefront to browse applications and change the payment method for the BlackBerry ID. Syncing applications via a wired connection to the BlackBerry smartphone is NOT supported on the Mac at this time.

    Welcome to spydahman

    I'm assuming when you attempted to change the App World billing method for your BlackBerry Playbook, you tried to change it from your computer, not the PlayBook's browser, as mentioned in the above method.

    Tried changing from a PC, as mentioned in the instructions. Not from the Playbook itself.

    Try to clear out the computer's cache, and/or re-boot the system, attempt to change the App World billing on your computer again.

    Thanks for the tip, grimreaper. I tried this, but it didn't work. When plugging in the Playbook and logging into the site above in the first post using a PC, the Playbook does not show it's connected. I even installed the plugin for App World or whatever it was that I needed. I checked the payment options anyway, and found that the billing option to my phone bill was still not there. Only Paypal and CC. I checked on my Bold and found that the option to bill to my phone bill is still there.

    Any other ideas?

    You need to contact your bank and any other credit issuer rafiki, before you have anymore questionable transactions.

    Yes, PayPal has a very good process to handle questionable disputes.
