Why was my payment method declined?

If you were shown an error while we attempted to process your credit card, please double-check your payment information and try again.

Only your bank or credit card issuer can confirm the specific reason. Here are a few of the most common ones:

  1. Incorrect credit card number or expiration date
  2. Insufficient funds
  3. Some banks will reject charges based on location; online international payments should be enabled
  4. Some banks will reject charges based on their own fraud rules

Grammarly accepts the following payment methods: credit cards, PayPal, debit cards (with the exception of Visa Electron, Mastercard Maestro, and Interac); you can use PayPal as an alternative to a credit card payment.

However, due to restrictions specific to some payment processors, some payment methods may not be available. The list of available payment methods will be shown upon checkout.

We do not accept personal checks, money orders, or payments made by phone.
