      • "Success" indicates that our system was able to accurately process the charge.
      • "Credit Card Declined" means that our system could not process the card. This could be due to any number of reasons, from an incorrectly typed number to a bad expiration date. If our system will not accept a card after trying several times, the only option would be to try a different card.
  • Order Status
    • This section will tell you if the purchase of the item(s) is pending credit card authorization, or if it has already been purchased. It will also provide you with the shipping date of the item(s).
