Attempting to reserve 1st class tickets from:

July 4th 13:42 - Frankfort Airport to Amsterdam Centraal (ICE124)

July 6th 12:38 - Amsterdam Centraal to Cologne (ICE 125) 

July 7th 08:16 - Cologne to Berlin (ICE 824 & ICE 545)

July 9th 13:15 - Berlin to Prague (EC175)

July 11th 11:56 - Prague to Vienna (RJ79)

July 13th 09:02 - Vienna to Salzburg (RJ596)

July 15th 10:56 - Salzburg to Munich (EC262)

July 17th 09:55 - Munich to Nuremburg (ICE800)

July 18th 14:34 - Nuremburg to Frankfort (ICE624)

I have purchased a Global Pass and yet have been unable to make and pay for the reservations listed above.  The Proceed to Payment button is grayed out and will not respond.  What do I do now, wait until I arrive and take my chances to make reservations at the station?  The app is poorly written and unintuitive if one can’t make reservations and not tell you why.

Do not buy these reservations via Eurail. You'd be paying too much: 8€ per train.

It's better to book via ÖBB (3€ per train) or DB (€5.90 per journey for 1st class), using the "Seat only” option.

By the way, all trains you mentioned have optional reservations.
