Why is Amazon Video not accepting my card?
When Amazon Video does not accept the card, incorrect details are likely entered. Or, the bank servers responsible for processing transactions may be down.
Also, there’s an option to enable cards for online payments. If that’s not turned on, the payment will fail. For credit cards, make sure you have not hit the credit limit.
Is Amazon not accepting Visa debit cards?
While Amazon had, at a point, planned to stop accepting Visa cards due to a high fee levied on transactions, the whole idea was shelved after it reached an agreement with Visa.
So, Amazon is now accepting Visa debit and credit cards, and you shouldn’t have a problem using these to purchase products from the e-commerce giant.
Why is my card getting declined even though I have money?
Here are a few reasons your card is declined even though there is money in the account:
- Blocked card: In most cases, the declined card was blocked either by the holder or the bank.
- Hit the limit: The card may have a daily, weekly, or monthly limit, and as soon as you reach it, the card will get declined on subsequent payments.
- Server issues: If the servers are down, the card will decline. The issuing party informs of any downtime well in advance to ensure minimal user discomfort.
- Card has expired: Cards have an expiry date, usually listed as Valid Thru, after which they cease to work, and users need to apply for a new card.
- Suspicious activity detected: If the card issuer detects suspicious transactions or activity, it might put the card temporarily on hold and, as a result, the transactions get declined.
