Cannot buy Microsoft Points

Whenever I try to buy Microsoft Points I get the following message in red (in Norwegian):

Betalingsmåten ble ikke godkjent. Kontakt leverandøren din, eller prøv en annen betalingsmåte.

 

Roughly "The payment was not accepted. Contact your vendor (why vendor? No idea ...), or try another payment method.
I have already tried three different  credit cards unsuccessfully.

Contact your bank and see what is happening with the transaction, once you have this information contact support and let them know of the problems your bank is having with the transaction. This has happened before to me, they should have it fixed soon once you do.

? "I have the same problem" seems very clear to me; alternatively, my post would be a copy of the o.p.'s.

In addition, I have a different problem--though very much of the same kind--when trying to buy a game directly
