iPhoto Billing Information Error

While trying to order some prints from Kodak/Apple via iPhoto yesterday, I repeatedly got the pseudo-error message:

Please review your billing information and approve it.

After checking out my billing information twice, and still getting that error, I found the answer on an Apple Discussions thread: Make sure your credit card verification code is entered in the Account Information screen. Why iPhoto doesn’t highlight or complain about the missing required field is beyond me, but overlooking this tiny field causes problems that hardly indicate their source.

    I just ran into this problem. Thankfully I found this post, and it helped me get past this very annoying and cryptic error!

    I kept typing in my card verification code, but nothing worked until I changed my Account Preference for shipping speed to ALSO match the shipping speed I put on my order (express). Makes no sense, but it finally worked!
