Why was my credit card declined?
A charge may be declined due to invalid credit card information, a restriction on the account due to suspicious activity, or insufficient funds.

Payment providers such as credit card companies will often place a temporary hold on funds when a payment request has been submitted. When a transaction has been completed, this hold is converted into a permanent payment record and the funds are withdrawn from the account. If the transaction does not complete for any reason, the temporary hold will be cleared from your account and funds will not be withdrawn.
If your order was not successful any charge you see is likely a pre-authorization charge which will drop off automatically after a few business days. If the charge does not drop off, please use the following link to submit a request to our payment processor, FastSpring: Lookup a Charge.
