Why am I getting an error when ordering?

The error could be a result of an existing issue between American Express and PayPal. Even if you are not using an AMEX credit card, forward the error to to have the issue quickly resolved.

Why am I receiving a "15005 – Gateway decline" error when paying?

It appears that your credit card is being declined by the issuer, not PayPal or our system. This is the error message we are getting: "15005 – Gateway decline: Your card issuer, not PayPal, declined the transaction. Ask your buyer for another card."

We typically see this when you are attempting to use a corporate credit card that PayPal has been blocked on (companies often do this to keep employees from charging stuff from internet stores (i.e. eBay) on their corporate account).

If you don't have another card to try, we suggest contacting your credit card company yourself to try and remove the block and make sure there are no other limits you are unaware of – otherwise, you may need to wire money or send us a check via mail.
