Books Sales and Ordering 


My card was declined, but the card is good!

Declines happen for a variety of reasons. When a charge is submitted to your bank, they have automated systems that determine whether or not to accept the charge. These systems take various signals into account, such as your spending habits, account balance, and card information like the expiration date and CVV: the security code on the back of your card.

Since these signals are constantly changing, a previously successful card might be declined in the future. Even if all of the card information is correct, and you previously had a successful payment, a future charge can still be declined by a bank’s overzealous fraud systems.

Contact your bank, inquire for more information, and ask for future charges to be accepted.

Why would you want my email address and phone number when I order?

It’s optional, but we often spot check to see if what you ordered got to you, or maybe we wrote down your credit/debit card wrong and the purchase was declined. Without your email address and phone, we can’t give the kind of customer service we strive for.
