Signed up to GenesReunited in January using Paypal for 6 months - as the time is up GR tried to renew subscription but failed saying card had changed or was invalid - it still has over a year to go and still works everywhere else - no PayPal have emailed me to delete card details.
A I don't have a credit card the only way to pay or renewal of GR is by cheque
As to PayPal I will just apply as a new customer ;(
Credit and Debit cards can and do have sensitive moments.
The other week I tried to pay the TV licence on-line, and the payment was refused. Telephoned the licence people to complete the transaction, and the adviser informed me that the transaction couldn't be processed, "as there was a problem with the card". I offered another card, and the transaction was completed.
Later that day, I used the 'rejected' card in two other establishments, informing the retailer that there might be a problem with the card, but I wanted to check it. Both transactions went through without a problem, and the same card as been used many times since, without any hints of a problem.
