Why was my debit card declined?

None of the above comments cover my situation but my card was declined twice, I have asked WHY this was done and could not get an answer from the 0345 835 3353 number and asked to make a complaint, and have received an email pointing me towards The Financial Ombudsman, I do not wish to do this all I want is an answer to my question Why was my Card Declined twice and is this going to happen again.

Hi @RD35, I'm sorry to hear that. Unfortunately I'm limited on the information that I’m able to give via this channel. However, the letter that we've sent you should have contact details with an advisor who's able to help you further.

Good morning, I have received my replacement card and just tried to use it to pay a phone bill on line, this has been declined although my account is in a positive as over paid my last bill. Last year I did restrict my card but this is a new one. I am reliable on internet and email currently due to circumstances.

Hello @Stephenjrichard, I'm sorry to hear your card was declined. You may need to use the Chip and PIN function first of all before you’re able to use the card online or contactless. Can you please try this and let me know if you have any issues? - Caroline

No problem, @Stephenjrichard! The same would still apply. If you use the card for a Chip and PIN transaction, this will activate the other features of the card and you'll be able to use it online :) - Caroline
