I'm a fool
So I've never used bitcoin before! I setup a wallet and made a payment, waited for it to go through and then checked my bitcoin wallet and it showed the amount I paid for in there. I then proceeded to try and make a transaction but couldn't work out why it said I had no bitcoin to spend, and I was like "wtf why can't I spend this". I didn't realize that you have to wait for the bitcoin to go through another process of bitcoin transaction or whatnot...

I guess I just have to wait a little longer before I can spend the bitcoins..

Hmm so the transaction went through and I've made 2 orders so far, I've tried to put a another order through but for some reason it says I don't have the bit coin for it even though I do. Any ideas why this is happening?

Well it seems its all fixed now, I've placed my orders and now just have to wait.

Sorry about all this I'm new to using bitcoin and was a tad worried about the situation!
Here's a bad joke to make it up.
I told my wife I was going to make a car out of spaghetti, fussili and macaroni, she thought I was joking but she won't when I drive pasta.

You should be able to spend unconfirmed bitcoins, I do it all in the time using electrum wallet, maybe there's an option you need to enable in your wallet.

As for the second part do you have enough BTC to cover the transaction fee as well as the payment? remember you always need a little bit extra :)

Good luck mate

Yeah I made sure that I had enough in my wallet to buy my items and have more than enough to cover any transactions I made. Like I said I new to bitcoin and am most probably just having some teething problems at the moment.
I'm using a ledger nano 2 just for reference.
