If you're trying to pay for any sitewright.io subscription or service, and your payment was declined, it could be because the payment method is invalid, the billing details were entered incorrectly, or there's an issue with your bank. 

If the situations below don't apply to you:

  • For issues with renewal payments visit Why did my renewal payment fail?

  • If your payment isn't processing and you don't see a message with more information, it could be an issue with your browser. Follow our [browser troubleshooting steps].

Unaccepted payment method

Ensure you are using a card we accept for payments.  We accept Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Discover.

Invalid card number

If your card number is incorrect, a red warning will display. Check your card number for errors and try again.

Error message: Forced failure

A message saying Forced failure will appear when a charge is denied by the bank. This can happen for two reasons:

Incorrect Information

If the expiration date or CVC code is incorrect, your bank will deny the charge. Correct the information, and the issue should resolve.

Transaction Declined

If your card number, expiration date, and CVC are all correct, then your bank is denying the charge for another reason.

Contact your bank with the date and time you tried to make a charge to Servicewright, LLC. After resolving any issues with your bank, try the payment again.
