I was downloading a few free e-books and got an error message for one stating "the credit card issuer is not approving the charge". My card info is up to date and I have money in the account, so I don't believe it's a validation charge issue. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
BN pings the card to verify it is active, even for free books. Some cc companies, if a lot of small charges go through in a short period of time, will block any further charges until it can be looked into. You only say you were downloading a few, have you ever downloaded this many books consecutively before? That conceivable could be the problem. I know a while back someone reported this happening to them.
