It is common for banks to not authorize certain transactions based on their internal policies.
The most common reasons for your payment to fail are either filters your bank applies to certain transactions made online, or amount limitations applied to your card.
If your payment is being rejected, please reach out to your bank to get additional information. You can notify them of the international online payment you're trying to make to Flywire. They can sometimes remove certain security filters or amount restrictions, and you should be able to try again.
Additionally, please make sure that the following information is correct when making a card payment:
- The brand of your card matches the brand of the card payment method chosen
- The currency of your card matches the currency of the card payment method chosen
If you cannot increase your card limit, you can always create several smaller payment requests whose sum is equal to the total amount due to your institution. Please note, we CANNOT accept prepaid cards.
