Checkout Problems

Payment Submission Issues

Should your payment be declined, please double-check the following items and try again:


  • The shipping address for your order must match the shipping address listed on your PayPal account.
  • To place an order using both store credit and PayPal, apply the store credit before clicking Continue with PayPal.
  • PayPal may place limits on the number of transactions or the value of those transactions monthly.
  • Confirm that you have available funds in your PayPal account or that you have linked a credit card, debit card, or your bank account.

Credit/Debit Card

  • The billing address for your order must match the address on file with the issuer of the card.
  • The expiration date must be correct and must not have passed.
  • The CVV code must match the one on the physical card. The CVV code is a three-digit number on the backs of Visa, MasterCard, and Discover cards, and a four-digit number on the fronts of American Express cards.
  • Multiple unsuccessful attempts to complete an order may result in your financial institution either placing a hold on your account or showing an authorization hold on funds within your account. Please contact your bank to resolve. See Authorization Holds under Payment Options to learn more.
