Why was my credit card declined?

There could be a number of reasons why your credit card was declined. These include:

  • An incorrect credit card number, expiration date or billing address.
  • A hold on your credit card (this can happen when a credit card company detects a transaction that they don’t believe to be a normal purchase and believe it is a fraudulent charge).
  • A restriction on your credit card (for example, you may not be able to use your credit card outside of a specific country).
  • Insufficient funds.

As a first step, please try to enter your credit card information one more time. If your credit card is is declined again, you will need to contact your credit card company.
