While registering, my credit card was declined. Why is this?
There can be a number of reasons why a credit card can be declined. One of which is if the bank which issued the card does not recognize Technology Vision Group LLC as a vendor. Banks may decline the transaction even if there are sufficient funds in the account. This will require a phone call to the bank for pre-authorization of the transaction. Another reason for a “declined" message can be that the billing address does not match the billing address for the card. The billing address must match the address to which the bill is sent.
