Unable to book Forward Y seat

I've now tried twice to book a forward economy seat on my SQ flight between SIN-SGN in October. Both times, after my credit card charge showed up on my iPhone immediately after doing the payment, I get a screen on the SQ website indicating there will be a delay in processing and confirming my purchase. A day later, the cc pending charge has vanished, no charge appears, and on checking the SQ site, no seat has been booked.

Some further specifics: this is an award ticket using UA/MP miles and the FF number on the booking is my AC/Altitude number (STARGold).

Is this a common experience for non-singapore resident credit cards?

Happened to me recently when using an Amex card - it failed to process the safekey step and the payment never went through. SIA showed the seat selection for a day or so, then it dropped off. So I retried with a Mastercard and it worked fine. Try a different card, and perhaps also using a proper browser on a PC/laptop.
