In the past two days I've tried to make an in app purchase in two apps*. I've successfully made purchases in the past, but not with these apps, and both times yesterday and today I've gotten an odd failure. I'm using an iPhone XS Max.
Here's what I do:
Click on remove adds in either app, which gives the "Double click to pay" dialogue.
Double click the side button
Face ID checks and gives a checkmark with "Done" below
Continue takes me to Settings, checks Face ID and shows my billing information with the CVV not filled in.
Both Cancel and Buy seem to do the same thing at this point, just drop me back to the Account Settings page.
That "%%appleId%%" seems super sketchy. I'm keeping an eye on my credit card and haven't seen any weird charges. If I manually follow the path from the first dialogue I get to the same "Account Settings" page and get the same dialogue with "%%appleId%%"
Otherwise, this seems like it could be a bug. Can I do anything to get around this %%appleId%% error dialog where it won’t let me enter my password or make a purchase?
