Hi Shopify,

A customer complained to me that he got error message 'card was declined' when he tried to pay the order. So I also tried to test and make payment and my card also declined. How to fix this problem?

Thank you.

Hi @syfqh95,

June here from Shopify. Thanks for your question! 

I'd love to gather a little more information about what you're seeing here so we can narrow down why you're currently having difficulty accepting orders.

  • Is this your first order? If no, when did you last successfully process payment for an order? 
  • What payment gateway(s) do you have active on your store and which one have you and your customer used? 
  • When you visit Orders > Abandoned checkouts, select your order, and view the section Additional details, is there a red payment failure message? 
  • If yes, click on the payment event to expand it. Is there are reason or decline code offered to indicate the cause of the failed transaction?

Thanks so much for these details! Very helpful. 

Are both of those screenshots taken from your customer's payment attempts? If so, what decline code are you seeing on your own Abandoned checkout(s)?

For the first attempt, we can see that the card had insufficient funds, which prevented your customer from completing their payment. For the second, the decline code do_not_honor (shown here), does not give us quite as much information. Stripe indicates that in cases where a failed payment returns this particular decline code, your customer will need to contact their bank for clarification.

I'm curious to know what reason/ decline code you are seeing on your own payment attempts.
