Welcome to Android Central! Which device do you have? Which app are you trying to install? Does this happen on both wi-fi and mobile data? Are you selecting the apps to install using the Play Store website on your browser, or the actual Play Store app on your phone? The message that says it will download shortly is usually when you try to do it from the website.
