Re: Prepaid Visa cards are declined

Hello, JuliaT.


One possible reason why prepaid visa card payments are declined is that it was not run as credit card. to fix this, you can turn on the credit card option in your settings. Here’ how:

  1. Go to Edit at the very top and select Preferences.
  2. Choose Payments and go to Company Preferences.
  3. Select Credit Card under ONLINE PAYMETS.
  4. Click OK.

For more information why payments are declined, please refer to this article:


If you’re still experiencing the issue after trying the steps above, I’d recommend contacting the merchant services. Here’s an article on how to reach them:
