Payments not working for no reason.

Hi, I just bought a Quest and when I was trying to add a payment method it simply did not work. After a number of tries with no results (It said "Something went wrong") I called the bank and they said it is 100% on the end of Oculus and nothing is wrong with my account or anything. Then I tried another card, no luck. I tried a PayPal, no luck. I am really puzzled about this and now it says "The payments have been disabled on your account because of unusual activity" Unusual activity resulting from a flawed system that does not accept valid payment methods... Yes I've already put in tickets about this but I want to see if there is a fix I can do like factor resetting.

    Hey @nmz3r0, I'm sorry to hear about you're having issues adding a payment method. A factory reset would not likely help this issue but few other things that you can try are adding a payment method through a different web browser, different network, or use a different device. You can try adding a payment through our website here If you're still not able to add your payment, please make sure that you update your support ticket. Thanks! -Rick

    I have tried using a web browser, different networks, and different devices. I tried that link as well. Nothing is working. It is obviously some block that you have put on my account mistakenly so please simply remove it.

    When you thought trying to give them money shouldn't be this hard...

    Something similar happened to me and I contacted Oculus on live chat

    They removed the lock on my account there and then and I could then re-add my payment method right away.
