I want to buy Minecraft and therefore I registered an new Mojang account.
I have received an email with a link for email-verification....but when I click the link I am sent to an Mojang login page. I am able to login with my email-adress and password.
Here I can fill out addtional information in account-settings and "secure" my account.
But when I go to buy Minecraft and are asked to login to the Mojang account I am told that my email-adress haven't been verified.
I log into the Mojang account and enter settings for the account. Here there is a warning:
Your e-mail address has not been verified. This is a great way to secure your account and preventing someone from changing the e-mail address of your Mojang account without your confirmation
When I press the "Resend verification email"-button I get this message (even though it is 6 hours ago i received the verification email):
Error! We've already sent a verification e-mail to you not long ago. Check your spam filter and try again in a couple of hours.
This has been happening to me. All I want to do is buy mine craft for my son. It isn't the sort of thing a company would ignore. Can some one help? Three days and counting and not reply from the company support or the automated system. apart from the repeated error messages as the poster above.
in that site , i have to type my username. hmm. i dont have a user name, because I cant veryfi my email, and not veritfying my email means I cant redeem my Gift code! And NOt being able to redeem my gift code means, that I cannot have a minecraft game to use my username for!
theres also the "Transaction ID (or order number, gift code or prepaid PIN)"
really? I should just put my gift code that took me forever to win, in an email, that anyone could see? Im just going to have to trust you with my gift code? really?
And If I dont trust you with my gift code, then what? You're not even gonna send me a verification email?
Im commenting here because no one is helping in my post. http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/2632510-i-cant-verify-my-email-i-need-email-verification/
Hello there, I know that it's a long time ago you had the problem.
But I just had the same problem, which is very annoying.. But I got it fixed!
What i did was that I went to the minecraft website (minecraft.net) pressed buy Minecraft and logged in, there it said that I needed to vertify, I keept the window open and pressed the link in the email to vertify the account, and then I got activated!
Hope this will help other people in the future! :-D
So no, it does not work. You're still not playing Minecraft. Notice how they locked my verification thread email? This is the support Mojang offers. Deafness and ignoring customers.
We have been trying to get our own validation email to authorize our account since 8 hours ago. Nothing.
We tried seven different email accounts because no verification ever came - of those we finally got a single verification email to ONE address and it fails to do anything at all.
This is most of a Saturday trying to simply pay for a game that anywhere else would be completed easily in three minutes.
Mojang is not interested. if it eventually works, fine. If not, too bad. Stupid beyond words.
That link does work, contact Mojang and they will sort it out for you. Only Mojang can fix account issues.
The link failing on here is nothing to do with Mojang as this is not their forum, Mojang do not run or own this forum.
KEEP complaining on here - Mojang ignores support requests or you get a uselss automated babble.
We posted a frustrated plea for help getting the verification to actually verify anything and a minute later it vanished but we suddenly got a new verification email to the account we posted from that finally worked, only 8 hours after starting this fiasco.
Somebody watching here is able to send you what you need.
