Why was my transaction declined?
We take credit card fraud very seriously and we are diligent in protecting both ourselves and our customers. Our system relies on an AVS (Address Verification System), when a credit card is processed our gateway returns either an approval code or an error code. The following is a list of codes that may decline your transaction:
*AVS response: G No match at all - Your credit card provider is telling the shopping cart that the Billing Street Address & the Billing Zip Code you entered are incorrect. We have reversed your transaction due to incorrect Billing Address details. If you may have made a mistake, please go back and fix it. If too many attempts are made, you will be reported to the credit card company for fraud risk.
*AVS response: R Issuer does not participate in AVS - We have reversed your transaction due to the fact that your bank does not participate in Card Verification Code System. If your bank does not participate in the Card Verification Code System you will need to choose another payment method.
*AVS response: Unsupported by Issuer - We have reversed your transaction due to the fact that your bank does not participate in Card Verification Code System. If your bank does not participate in the Card Verification Code System you will need to choose another payment method.
If your transaction was declined, please let us know and we can investigate further.
*Special note regarding error codes: These error codes will result in an automatic reversal of the transaction. This means that although the transaction was approved by your credit card provider, the address information returned did not match what was entered on your order. If you see the transaction on your credit card statement, you will also see a reversal shortly after. Please note it may take a few days for this reversal to show up on your statement.
