Please cross check that the Merchant accepts Visa Cards. Ask the merchant to ensure that he/she has swiped your Card on a Card terminal or inserted it in a Chip and PIN Card Terminal. If the Card is still declined, go to the nearest ATM to check your available balance. If balance (above the amount your card was declined for) is available on your Card, you can withdraw the cash from the ATM and settle it with the merchant. Report the matter to our 24-hour Customer Service (Details on the back of the card) or click "chat now" at the bottom right hand corner of your screen.
