It failed on me constantly after submitting my payment via paypal (the payment does not go through until a successful order), but then finally let me complete the order.
What I did was tried to buy (entered paypal info) then submitted when it failed with that error (none are available, if you keep receiving this error...) I just used the back button to the checkout screen and tried to pay again, and again, and again, until I got the confirmation of success. You will not get billed until you succeed as well, at least that is what occurred with me. Now I will say I did buy last night, so they could be low on stock now, but I keep seeing the number sold rise as i type this so I presume they still have them

How does one become a pre-approved buyer? I emailed them so will see what happens.
I think eBay does allow for such auctions/listings, but did not see anything like that when I bought mine.
I think you normally have to email them so they can add you to an allowed bidder/buyer list for that item.
