Managing your payment method

The payment methods accepted for Enom retail accounts are Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. Reseller accounts have other billing and payment options. We send an email confirmation with the order number, domain name, service description, and price for all orders placed in your account. Retain this receipt, as we can not resend these emails. If you encounter issues with your billing, we've got you covered.

Note: All billing and transactions are processed in US dollars (USD).

Card Rejections and denials

We, of course, want you to be able to complete your purchase, but there are a few reasons that may cause your transaction to be rejected or denied.
Note: We currently do not accept 3DS (two-factor) security setups for credit cards.

The CVV2 number may be invalid.

The CVV2 number is the 3-digit code on the back of a MasterCard, Visa, or Discover card.  For an American Express card, it's the 4-digit number on the front.

The expiration date has lapsed or is incorrect.

Double-check the card expiration date.

Your bank may be rejecting the order for your protection as we are an Internet business.

If you are currently in a different country from the country of issuance, they may also be rejecting the charge for potential fraud. You must contact your bank to approve the transaction(s).

If you have recently moved, they may still have your old address in the database.

Give your old address a try, or call your bank and ask them which address to use, as the system will require an exact match, so if you use a P.O. Box on your credit card statement, be sure to enter the P.O. Box and not your street address.

Important: When contacting your bank to approve the transaction(s), you will likely need to give them the total amount(s) along with our merchant name: DOMAIN NAME REGISTER.

If you get the message "Credit Card Declined," this is an error message directly from your bank, so you must contact them to resolve it. Use alternative payment options if the bank cannot resolve your issue.

Depending on your bank, a series of attempts to charge your card will sometimes result in multiple pre-authorization requests to your account balance. The bank will place a hold on all pre-authorized funds for an average of 7-14 days and will then release the funds when the order is not complete. We do not have a way to reverse pre-authorizations. If you look at an online statement, the pre-authorizations will appear to be actual charges. However, no funds will be collected unless we can process the transaction, and the pre-authorizations will disappear from your bank statement.

Order processing

Occasionally, an order may be flagged for manual review by our orders team and can take one business day to process. To check on the status of your order, you will need to review your order history

Credit card lock

The 24-hour transaction lock might be applied to the account when the system detects unusual or suspicious activities. The lock is necessary, as you could be liable for fraudulent transactions. The following events might trigger the lock: 

  • Multiple credit card changes in a short period.
  • Multiple failed transactions in a short time.
  • If you are a Registry Rocket reseller, someone may have entered fraudulent credit card numbers on your site.

Our customer service cannot reverse the lock. We can, however, give you specific error messages from our credit card processor. The lock will automatically be released 24 hours after displaying the first error message. After the lock has been automatically lifted, verify your credit card information and reattempt your transaction. Do not make several attempts if you receive another error message; contact us immediately.
