Reasons why a transaction with this method might fail:

There can be several reasons. This is what you should check before submitting a support ticket:

  • It may happen that the issuing bank does not authorize your transaction. We recommend contacting your bank card issuer for more information, as they may need to authorize MoonPay as a merchant to continue transacting.
  • Make sure you are operating in one of the supported countries. For the U.S., ineligible states are Connecticut, Hawaii, New York, New Hampshire, Texas, Vermont, Virginia.
  • Prepaid cards associated with your Google Pay and Apple Pay accounts are not accepted at this time.
  • Keep your billing information up to date, this must match the one registered with your bank.
