problems getting card authorized

hi all,


I'm having trouble getting my payoneer prepaid MasterCard authorized when I try to make purchases online. It's hit and miss. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.Recently I've tried to pay at and  and both told me they could  authorized the transaction. Other transactions in the same time span with for example or worked just fine.


Usually when I pay in store I've never had any trouble.


Why is this? it's happened at regular intervals over several months now, so it's not a one-off.


 Thanks for any tips

    Hi Chris,


    The card works in the vast majority of online sites. With Hulu and Ticketmaster specifically, it may be related to the card's issuing bank. Specific US merchants will require that you use a card that is issued by a US bank (I know personally I had the same issue with Ticketmaster). As not all Payoneer cards are issued by US banks, this may result in the merchant not allowing the transaction.


    To confirm if the merchant has this requirement, I would suggest contacting them directly.

    Thanks Nissim!


    How can I find out what my issuing bank is? I actually thought it was a US bank, I have the US payment service which is associated to First Century Bank.


    I also had troubles buying tickets from Ticketmaster here in Spain, so I don't think it's a region specific problem. Are there any logs which allow us to see why a transaction was denied? Or do these not even reach Payoneer?


    Many thanks again
