IF YOU COULD NOT PAY VIA YOUR DEBIT/CREDIT CARD?

Sometime you may try to pay via this method and fail. It usually happens due to the security process of the banks and means that you need to activate the card for foreign transactions.

If so, follow the below procedure to ensure that the money will be properly transferred:

1) Inform your card holding bank that your payment failed.

2) Inform the bank that you wish to perform an international payment through your card and request them to allow/ verify your card for international payments.
