Is there a problem here?  

Either button?



The button? There are two buttons. One implies authorizing payment; the other does not. The text says clicking "the button" authorizes payment.

Consistency people. Consistency. Descriptive text should match the GUI controls. Why is this so difficult for so many GUI developers?

I think it's in the habit. Most of us look at eye catching obvious stuff rather than the small ones. As a first time looker at this article, when I looked at the picture attached, my eyes looked first at the buttons and said, hmm, what's wrong here and then read your description of the problem. It's a nicety to be precise, but they can get away with it. I feel they wasted space by putting in that text when the buttons themselves are so obvious.
