If you are a Fortnite player who also owns a Samsung device, you may have recently faced an issue that prevents you from buying V-Bucks twice in a row. The bug appears to affect only Samsung’s Galaxy Store on Android, according to a new bug report posted by Epic on its Trello forum, forcing players to obtain digital currency through other platforms.
Fortnite hasn’t returned to the Google Play Store yet, but that’s not a big deal if you have a Samsung device – you can still download the mobile version of the game through the Galaxy Store (via Epic mobile launcher). However, trying to buy V-Bucks through Samsung is currently problematic.
It seems that a problem is preventing players from getting the same amount of V-Bucks twice in a row, which means that if you buy the cheapest amount available, you will have to choose a more expensive option the next time you want to buy some V- Bucks.
This is just a workaround, however, with Epic listing the bug as “under development”. You can follow the bug report on the public Trello Fortnite board, where Epic lists known bugs, their priority and any possible workarounds.
Alternatively, you can follow the Fortnite Status Twitter account, where Epic tweets about problems and updates when they are resolved. In the meantime, you can also use a different platform to purchase V-Bucks, including physical cards available from some retailers.
