Why did my payment fail?

MyPhotoSocks accepts credit or debit cards that have a Visa, Master Card, American Express or JCB logo and PayPal payments. Most payment failures are due to a disapproval by your bank. If you see a payment failed message please contact your bank or credit card provider for more information. When the cardholder's bank is declining the charge and sending the error, only the bank knows why the transaction was declined and how to correct the issue. Before contacting your bank, you can also find a list of the most common reasons for a failed payment for any of our services.
