Some one posted a solution.
Could it work for you ?
Just received confirmation that my purchase was successful! In case it is not some internal fix here are the things I did:
- used my main many years old appleid (same as for iTunes and iCloud)
- wired brand new card to iTunes for that account and made a purchase of some random app
- replaced trusted phone in previous appleid (it was new one created specially for Apple developer) with other phone and requested appleid complete removal
