It is not a problem from my bank this side. We had this problem in the past also, then rectified itself :huh: :huh:
Might have to donate elsewhere :hmz: :hmz:

I have sent a PM to Dinky Bird last week and pointed out the problem.

I also had the problem with my credit card for 2 days.The third day I took the direct account option and the money was taken directly off my savings account, i received the confirmation the same day and the money went of my account two days later.

Hi all,

When GivenGain was asked about problems with the payments earlier this year, this was their reply:
It is a well-known fact that all financial institutions are becoming increasingly more strict with regards to online fraud, providing credit and allowing certain types of online transactions. This is partly due to some compliance requirements, legislation etc.

I may have mentioned previously that GivenGain provides the online payment instruction to the bank of the donor, wherafter the bank will allow or decline the instruction. The reason for a payment being declined may only be made available to the card holder, but a few reasons coul be:

1. Insufficient funds on the card
2. The amount of the instruction is more than the limit as set on the card
3. The credit card details are entered incorrectly online
4. The bank suspects fraud
5. No reason at all - it is siccessful the next time when enquiring about it

GivenGain notifies a donor immediately when their donation instruction is declined and requests that he/she contacts their bank for further information and to make any rectifications where and if required.


I will ask Santa to please update as soon as she has time to do so.

Unfortunately not a real one, Joekin, only one that told us she was a brown hyena in disguise ... :twisted:

My donation went through on 13 Nov with no problems. I had to get an sms from my bank to enter a password but that is the norm with my bank. I wonder why others are having a problem?

@DB. As soon as you enter submit, it gives a notice of failure. No time to have processed through to bank.

I have now tried 5 times to donate and all end up with the big X!

I donated to Ratpack using same credit card number so nothing has changed from my side. The Givengain site did not seem to be user friendly to enquire or else I just missed it. Under contact us was a bit vague!

Any suggestions as I don't want SanParks to be charged everytime this doesn't work. Current account is in So's name and I though that might also cause grief (not the same name as the donor). :wall:

Cherries, I have been through it. You must write the exact information quoted on the credit card. If your husband's name is on the credit card, that is the name you must write.
It has changed since last time. I put my forum name in brackets, but this time it does not accept it and when I cancelled it, the donation went through. :D
