Internet Service Providers (ISPs)

Troubleshooting Payment Errors

Here are some items to check if you encounter payment errors:

  • Card Number and Expiration Date: For security reasons, you cannot view or edit new or existing card information after you enter it. You can try entering the card information again as a new payment method by selecting Add Card. Verify that the card number and expiration date are correct.
  • Name and Billing Address: Verify that the name and billing address match the address on record with your payment provider. You can review and edit these items in the cart.
  • Purchase Limits: Some banks place a limit on how much you can spend on an individual purchase or in a single day. Even if you have funds available, your bank may not authorize the charge. Call your bank and ask them to authorize the charge or get information about their online purchase policies.
  • Credit card authentication: When saving your credit card details, you may be required by your bank to validate your identity as an additional security measure. If you have trouble with the Two-Factor Authentication process, please verify your card details and try to go through the process again.

You may also try with a different card or choose a different payment method. If the issue persists, contact your bank.
