The credit card may be expired.
Check the expiration date on your card and verify that we have the correct date in our system.
The billing information may be incorrect.
Verify that the billing name, address, ZIP code, and CVV number for your credit card match what's in our system. The CVV number is a three-digit code printed on the back of most credit and debit cards. On American Express cards, it's a four-digit code on the front of the card.
You may need to clear your browser's cache and cookies.
Sometimes, browsers will cache errors from previously failed attempts and prevent the transaction from going through. Retry your order and re-enter your payment method after you clear your browser's cache and cookies.
The transaction timed out.
If the payment service is busy processing other transactions, your transaction could time out. Don't worry, your card won't be charged if there's a timeout. If the transaction times out, try again in a couple of minutes.
The credit card is brand new or has a low spending limit.
Call your issuing bank to see if you need to increase your spending limit. Sometimes, banks will start new accounts with a low security limit for fraud protection, and may reject some purchases. Our system tells us that a card has been declined, but doesn't provide details. If none of these steps resolve the issue, please contact your bank to find out why your card is being declined.
