A Customer Tried To Make A Purchase But It Says "Unable To Process Payment"

2 0 0

Recently multiple customers have tried to make a purchase on my site but aren't making it past checkout. When I go to the abandoned checkout section and look at the timeline its says for example, "Unable to process a payment for $5.99 USD using a Mastercard ending in 2214." Some customers tried multiple times and received the same error message, "Your card does not support this type of purchase." I tried purchasing the same product and the payment went through for me, does anyone know why.

Hi @onlymotives !


Thanks for reaching out to us about this.


This sounds like an unsupported card type being used at checkout. Every payment gateway has a list of supported card types per region. Is the error message for the abandoned checkouts the same throughout all the recent drops? What kind of card are you using?


I would recommend deactivating and reactivating the payment gateway anew to see if the issue persists.


Let me know how that goes.
