Why my credit card is getting declined?

If you are not able to pay your invoice and you are getting an error message that the credit card was declined you can do any of the following.

  1. Use another card to pay the invoice.
  2. Pay via an alternative method such as PayPal.
  3. Wait 8-12 hours and try paying again. Make sure you enter all details correctly including your address because our credit cards processor may decline the transaction if you entered wrong information.
  4. Contact your credit card issuer and ask them why the transaction was declined.
