I'm trying to make a purchase on steam (through wine of course) and when I choose paypal as the payment method I get the following error:

There seems to have been an error initializing or updating your transaction. Please wait a minute and try again or contact support for assistance.

I was trying to purchase the game outside my home country. That was the problem.

Anyway, what I didn't know is that you can go directly to steams website in order to make a purchase! This is really nice. I no longer have to purchase through steam!

In the end I contacted customer support and got it straightened out.
