I made one purchase and no problem and then another 10 min later' it happened 2 o3 hours ago

But the second purchase didn't work
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

ok, because you did a second one so quick, its likely marked it as suspicious as your card is being accepted by Apple.

You need to wait 12 hours, then try to make the purchase and it should then go through
