[Android] My purchase was canceled!

If you’ve tried making a purchase but your order was canceled, you will not be charged for that order.However, Google Play may put a temporary “reservation” on your credit card equal to the value of the purchase.

But don’t sweat it; these “reservations” clear automatically in a short period of time.Canceled purchases are likely to occur if your billing address, and/or the name registered in your Google Wallet is different than the one on your credit card.

​Straighten this out by contacting your bank to confirm details, then log into your Google Payments (at, and enter “Payment Methods” to verify that your information is consistent.
