    My guess, is that since you changed your regional settings to Sri Lanka, made some purchases and switched back, you probably set off some fraud detection algorithms and got red flagged by your bank/Visa. I would check with your bank/Visa as the card may have been suspended.

    You can only buy apps from a credit card of your region, if you change the region, then your billing address changes and it gets it suspended because it cannot be used for the US. Youd better stay with one region and never change it again.

    They take a few days to take the money, change region after you receive the email about payment
