Can't Make in-app Purchases - wrong Apple ID?

Has anyone received this error message when trying to purchase donuts or any other in-app purchase?

"Unable to Purchase

This item is for an app that was purchased by a different Apple ID. To buy this item with this Apple ID, you must first purchase the app."

As far as I know, I only have 1 Apple ID - not sure how I could have purchased the app with a different one.

Any thoughts? Thanks

Delete the app if you have wifi. Download with your one apple I'd signed in. Prepare for the update that will download. Sign back in. Try to buy donuts. Should work.

    I have the same problem, as I purchased it on another Id. Will deleting do anything and will it work? I've got iTunes money to blow on donuts.
