    The first thing you have to do is to turn off the phone and then turn it back on. Then you will have to open up the ‘Google Talk’. Then you will have to choose ‘Sign Out’ from the menu. Now again you will have to open the ‘Google Talk’. Once it appears that you are signed in again, you will have to exit the Google Talk. Now you will have to tap open the Google Play Store. Then you will have to cancel the ‘Download’ that is stuck on ‘Authorizing Credit Card’. Finally you will gain have to start the download. This will fix the issue.

    The problem may sounds difficult but the solution is quite simple. Actually, the process involves, sign out and freshly sign in your google account. The process is as follows.
    1. First thing you have to do is switch off your phone for while and then switch it on again.
    2. Enter into google talk and sign out your account.
    3. Now, you have to sign in again and exit the google talk for further continuation.
    4. Now, go to android store and cancel the one that was altered before and now try downloading the app again. That's it. Enjoy unlimited apps in store:-)
