When a cashier swipes your credit card, the payment system communicates with your credit card issuer to determine whether your credit card is valid and you have enough funds available for the transaction.

If you need assistance identifying the cause of decline and/or how to resolve the decline to complete the transaction, simply dial the toll-free number on the back of your PCard – you will be prompted to provide your 4-digit passcode. Alternately, you can contact the PCard Office for assistance at firstname.lastname@example.org or (614) 292-9290.
