Here's the scenario. You're excited to upgrade to a paid BowerBird account, you enter your credit card details and then.... it says declined! What going on? Well banks have all sorts of reasons for not approving a new charge, and often it has nothing to do with you. Here's a few reasons why it happens:
Lack of funds or funds on hold.
Over credit limit or missed payments.
Fraud prevention (international purchases).
Transaction that differs from spending habit.
The card is reported lost or stolen.
Your daily limited has been exceeded.
Separate technical issues involving the bank or the credit card company.
Here's a few solutions for declined cards.
Try a different card.
Contact your bank and find out why the charge is being declined.
Wait a couple days and try again.
Contact the BowerBird team and see if other payment methods are available in your country.
