SolvedGoodbye FT
"Card declined by issuing bank.
You may still pay by this card through PayPal by purchasing a FastTech gift card (3% discount)."

Can't be arsed to jump through your hoops, how can you hope to run a successful business like this ???? when other vendors are happy to take my money?

I have a great deal of affection for FT, all my early vaping shit/advice came from here.

Guess sadly, I have to take my business elsewhere.

Seems it is your bank that declined it, not FT.


What does issuing bank declined mean?


If you accept card payments in-person or online, you'll experience card declines from time to time. When a card's been declined, the merchant receives a code and brief explanation, such as “card declined by issuer.” This simply means that the credit or debit card issuer has put a stop to the transaction.






More info on Google. Card declined by issuing bank.


So maybe call your bank or whoever issued your card and find out why they declined the transaction.

viking65, thank you for the help. That was a thorough answer.

There are several possibilities that a credit card might be denied:
1) The card issuer is having technical problems that prevent authorization of a transaction.
2) The card issuer sees a charge that doesn’t fit your normal spending patterns and blocks the transaction to protect you.
3) You’ve inadvertently exceeded the limit on your card.

If you know that your credit card is valid but your payment doesn’t go through, you might need to contact your credit card issuer directly.

We've also contacted the payment processor and asked them to check the reason. We will update you in the ticket once we receive a reply from them. Thank you.

Perhaps RussG, should have replied to the ticket FT made informing him of the situation?

Also I see it is good info as others may not realize why their card was declined.

Many people do not really understand why their cards are declined and blame the vendor rather than their card issuer.


Hopefully RussG will see this, so he doesn't have the same issues with other vendors.

The card could be being drained as we speak due to stolen credentials etc

I know I don't check mine frequently enough after it happened once here, OP might need to look into that ASAP.

I check mine on a daily basis, can never be to safe.

Also you set your CC account to inform you of every purchase made or can set to a certain amount.

There is no valid reason imaginable for Staff to divulge the private status of a members bank/credit card, ever, under any circumstance.
