World Geocode Service Issue

I am trying to use the World Geocode Service to batch geocode addresses across the U.S. However, whenever I do so, I get the following error message:


"There was an error trying to process this table. ArcGIS Online subscription is required for geocoding the table of addresses."


The problem is that I am actually logged into ArcGIS Online when this happens (see image). Perhaps I have the wrong subscription type?! I can't tell though, despite my efforts to figure this out.


This is especially annoying for multiple reasons, among them. 1. It worked in previous versions of the software; 2. There are free batch geocoders online; and 3. There are other desktop solutions (e.g. QGIS with the Nominatim and Google web services) that are fully functional.


As an educator and an individual who promotes GIS solutions, I am finding it increasingly difficult to promote Esri products, especially when something as basic and near universal as geocoding is not properly functioning. I implore Esri to fix this.
