If the card info box says Powered by Stripe please see article Stripe Decline Response Codes
If not, please continue to the article below.

Below are possible reasons why a card authorisation might be declined:

  • Invalid account number
  • Expired card
  • Overlimit or past due
  • General decline, no other information provided by processor
  • Issuing bank will not electronically authorise the card
