Refused by card issuer
I tried to pay online and got an error message stating my payment was "refused by card issuer". What does that mean? In the vast majority of cases this usually indicates either of the following
- Limits or restrictions on the card (most often geographical restrictions)
- You have a card with no access to online payments
- Not enough money available in the account
Please contact your bank and let them help you assess the problem.
