If your card is declined, you will receive an error message. Your card will not be charged, and no order will be processed. There may be a pending transaction on your account until your card-issuing bank removes the authorization. This usually happens within 2-5 business days. Your card may be declined for the following reasons:
- General decline – This is usually caused by insufficient funds or a credit-limit issue. Contact your card-issuing bank for further details.
- AVS (Address Verification System) mismatch – The billing address you entered during checkout does not match the mailing address associated with your credit card billing statement.
- Card code mismatch – The 3-4 digit CVV2/CVC2/CID code on the back of your credit card, or front for AMEX, does not match what was entered during checkout.
Money Order, Personal Check or Cashier’s Check
We accept money orders, personal checks and cashier’s checks. We hold all checks and money orders for 10 business days before processing.
Prepaid Credit or Gift Cards
If you are using a Visa, MasterCard or American Express pre-paid credit or gift card, register the card by calling the card-issuing bank. During the checkout process, be sure the billing address matches the address used when registering the card. If there is an address mismatch, the transaction will be declined and a hold may be placed on your card. Please contact the card-issuing bank if this occurs.
