With the ever-increasing risk of fraud in the world today, someone has to take the risk of handling the money in a financial transaction and the responsibility if something goes wrong. That responsibility can belong to the merchant processor and each merchant has a certain risk tolerance. If a credit card is deemed to supersede the determined risk, the merchant will deny using the card through their services.
So if you try to pay for a subscription and your credit card is denied, you should first call your bank or credit card company to verify that they are not causing the problem but if they confirm there is no issue with them, then it is likely due to the specific credit card you are using or the billing address of the credit card and our merchant's unwillingness to process that particular card for whatever reason.
These companies are less and less willing to take risks that could involve fraud due to stolen credit cards being a common occurrence in today's world. History has taught them that the forex space is more prone to issues of fraud and chargebacks. If a credit card has been used previously in chargebacks due to claims of fraud or certain irresponsibilities are associated with the card then it will be denied.
Your options to pay for the subscription in addition to a credit card are as follows:
- Try another credit card.
- Use an alternative payment processor such as Skrill or Uphold.
- Use Bitcoin.
- Find a person to sell you a voucher. Learn more about vouchers at, https://eaconomy.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360037612373-How-to-Create-and-Redeem-Gift-Vouchers-
