If your VISA card payment has been declined, please check the following first:


  • Have you already activated the card after receiving it?
  • Is the card closed or blocked in your Penta Account?
  • Have you exceeded the daily or monthly limit for payments?
  • Is there enough liquidity in the Penta business account to make the payment?
  • If it is an NFC payment - Has your card already been activated for NFC payments?
  • If it is a Google Pay payment - have you already added your card to Google Pay?
  • Check if you received a push notification on your phone and confirmed the payment there
  • Is the card possibly damaged?
