Q: I received and AVS fail error message. What does this mean?


This error means the zip code you entered does not match the cardholder's address. If you feel you entered the zip code incorrectly, please try your payment again using the correct zip code. Please note that even though the payment failed, this will still appear as a pending transaction on your billing statement. The pending transaction will drop off of your account within 48-72 business hours once the failed authorization is cleared.

If you feel you correctly entered in the zip code, it is recommended you do not try to make the payment again, Call your credit card issuer to determine if they have the right zip code associated to your card.
