Why was my transaction declined online?

There are a few reasons your transaction could have been declined. Step one is to ensure that you have activated your card. Additionally if you are making an online purchase, the business address and zip code must be utilized as the billing address requested by the online provider. Please also ensure you know your credit limit, if you are trying to make a purchase that is higher than the limit accessible to you at that time, you will automatically be declined for the purchase.
