USEFUL HINT! If your transaction is declined, the most probable reason is that your credit card is detecting an overseas transaction (Error code 59). For security reasons, it places a temporary hold on your account. Before making a new attempt, you will need to call your credit card company and confirm that you recognize the charge. Once you do this, the hold will be removed, and you will be able to complete the payment.
