Order declined / multiple charges on my account?

Why is my order being declined?
‚ÄčCredit card charge attempts are normally declined due to a mismatch of billing information. If the billing information you entered does not match up exactly with the information on file with your card issuing bank, the transaction may be declined. Please double check the full name and full address on file with your card issuer, and make sure the same correct information is entered into the billing fields when placing an order.

If the billing information is correct, then please double check that the card number, expiration date and security code are all being entered correctly as well. 

After making sure all information being submitted is correct, then we recommend contacting the issuing bank for your card, and inquiring with them what the issue may be. 

My order attempt was declined, but why do I see multiple charges on my online statement?
When order attempts are made and then declined, this means no transactions were processed for the credit card, and no funds were processed for these transactions.

Certain banks and credit card companies place holds on user's cards for order attempts, even if no actual transaction takes place. It appears your bank could be applying this method.

Transaction holds on credit cards usually pass within 24 - 48 hrs, but that depends on the policies of the issuing bank, and this process is entirely out of our hands. We do not have the ability to influence when or how credit card holds are implemented, as that is solely up to the issuing banks.

If there is a hold enforced by your bank, it should clear here shortly. Any further questions regarding the hold process should be directed to your issuing bank.
