Q: I received a message saying "Gateway Rejected: avs" when I was trying to checkout. What does this mean?
A: If you receive this message when you try to confirm your order in the checkout process, it means that your credit card was rejected due to the AVS (Address Verification System). This system is used to verify the address of the person claiming to own the credit card. The system checks the billing address of the credit card provided by the user with the address on file at the credit card company. If these do not match, it will be rejected. If you feel that you received this message in error, please contact your credit card issuing bank to update your address that they have on file for you.
