Web 2.0 Directory verification

I just purchased the web 2.0 directory plugin for wordpress, installed it, found and entered in my purchase code, and generated an API token but the plugin refuses to verify. In the evantomarket section in WP my API key checks out and displays this plugin as a purchase in the plugins tab but when I go to edit the plugins settings and put in my purchase code and api token and hit save, it just sits there like it’s trying to do something but never completes. Any ideas? The documentation doesn’t mention any other steps to complete before all this.
