Hi Steveen!

First of all, do you have a premium account?  You must to buy land.

I think before being able to buy land at all LL needs your payment info on file.

Better hook up your creditcard or Paypal info if you want to buy land.

Hi Steveen

If you are not trying to buy land on the mainland then you are trying to buy on a private estate.  You only really rent on private estates.  And you don't need a premium account for that.  Hope that helps!

Peace

If it is estate land you are trying to "buy," then check to see, under Edit > Preferences, if you have access to all classifications of land, e.g., General (PG), Moderate (Mature), and Adult. Apparently, with Viewer 2, if that is what you are using, having access to all classifications of land is important, before you can "buy" estate land.

I am getting the exact same message!   I have a premium account, sufficient tier and sufficient funds.   I was trying to buy mainland.  I also cannot buy L$ in-world either, but can do so on web site.  I  spoke with live chat and filed a ticket.  Live chat said to reboot my router and computer--I did that.  No change.  I have also tried different computers).  I think it's THEM, not me, but i don't know for sure.  Frustrating, though!

Then you are renting land and that has nothing to do with LL. It's an agreement between you and the land owner and each one may handle it differently.

Go to About Land while on the parcel and read the covenant for instructions.

Truth speaks for itself...Bulls**t keeps talking.

Exact same situation for me, Kanini, and it is very frustrating.

I got a reply--They keep telling me to reboot (first via live chat, now via the ticket response).  DUH.  How many times??  I already did at least 5.  they also recommended I fgo to a different region.  i did, i clicked on "Buy this land" for land i didn't want, and I get the same error message about " error fetching data.  Can't authenticate you."  However, I noticed that my preferences magically changed after the rolling re-starts last night to GENERAL only.  So I changed that this afternoon and now the "Buy this land" isn't grayed out.  But when I click BUY-- I keep getting the same--we can't verify/authenticate you.  I also have land for sale and wonder how many others are out there trying to buy and can't...
