4. My credit card was declined, but the charge is showing on my credit card. What happened?
If your order was declined during the checkout process, you may see what looks like a "charge" on your credit card statement. You have not been charged. The "charge" appearing on your credit card is called a pending hold. Pending holds come about because banks and credit card companies hold funds for on-line transactions while they verify information in order to determine whether or not to approve the transaction. If the transaction was declined by your bank or credit card Company, the hold will come off your statement in accordance with the policies established by your bank or Credit Card Company. If you have any questions about when the hold will come off, please contact your bank or credit card company directly.
Please Note: You may receive an error message in the checkout process if your billing information is not exactly how your bank/credit card company has it on file. The message will say "AVS Mis-match: The billing address provided does not match the billing address on file with your credit company". If this happens, use the edit button to edit the billing information you entered previously so that it matches exactly the information your bank or credit card company has on file. Please note that information entered after your billing information such as promotional codes, online store credits, etc., may have to be re-entered.
For further information about this or any other error message received during the checkout process, please call customer service at 866-284-0424 or 717-522-4389.Back to top

Please have your invoice # ready and contact our Customer Service Department toll free at 866-284-0424 or 717-522-4389 to see if you are eligible for a price adjustment. Price adjustments will not be issued if the item was already marked "SALE" when you purchased it, or if you received a discount on that item by using a promotion code during checkout.
