Can not make payment thru checkout.  authorization failed on 2 different cards  (United states payment site)

cards are  both functional and valid

Is there a problem with the site?

You will have to contact 2Checkout directly to see why your payments are not being processed as we merely pass on what you want to purchase and the price, then they process the payment. Once the payment has cleared they they send you back here with the okay flag.

Hi Brian,


I was just wondering if  u were able to sort this issue at all.I am facing this problem right now.Four of my transaction have been denied.I bought something else from another site and the transaction went thru.


My bank says it is holding the money but the seller has not claimed.I called the 2checkout today and they say they do not see any transaction from me  since March.I am running from pillar to post...and missing out on all wonderful live classes:(




It has been 15 days so monies have been reverted back to my card....but now I hesitant to use it.

I can't comment specifically on the 2checkout process, but the PayPal choice of payment works fine for charges drawn on U.S. banks. I just paid for the next live class with PayPal about an hour ago, and it went through fine.

Just a thought: I've been a victim of identity theft twice in the past five years, and in both cases, we were able to track down the culprits to these secondary payment processing sites. On both occasions, disgruntled employees left the company and took with them names, social security numbers, and bank card numbers of some of the customers, and they made several attempts to get authorizations for payments I never requested. After the last incident, I never used secondary sources to pay for goods online. I only use PayPal. I've had an account with them for 10 years, and have never had a problem. If an online company doesn't offer PayPal as a source of payment, I go someplace else. PayPal might be something you might want to think about using. Like I said, it's just a thought!
Cheers,
Jani

I must say that although there are heaps of folks that refuse to get Paypal accounts, for me they are still the best way to pay online. I use then whenever I can and only use the Ccard when all else fails and have never had a single hassle with Paypal  O0

For me, paypal is the best too.
As a Dutchy, I don't even have any card. We just use paypal or Ideal, a Dutch paysystem for Dutch banks.
So much safer. Never had any problems with both of them.

I don't use paypal because a at the start of the year somebody tried to take out a large amount of money through my paypal account from my bank. thank goodness my bank stopped the transaction. phoned paypal but the guy couldn't be traced, that's why I am hesitant to use paypal.

Had a similar thing happen. Friends in Florida got wiped out 2 christmases ago. Ran both of their cards and took cash from their bank account, over $10,000. before anyone noticed! Luce discovered it when she went to buy gifts for her granddaughter at the store. Huge fight and ages before they got most of their money back.


Cheers, Val
