Why do I need to login to a character in game to buy from the C-Store?
 
I decided to purchase Zen and grab some master keys while the game is patching and doing that post-patching stare at comm-badge screen for several minutes thing it does, but it's not letting me purchase keys through the web interface. Buy button is grayed out and "Please login to this character in the game to enable store access." displayed above it. Why is this? What's the point of having a web store if you have to be logged into the game to purchase items?

I believe when you don't play for a while the database drops your character info to make room for other things - it's about maximizing space. Logging in and playing reassigns that information.
