Troubleshoot problems

I don’t see my credit card in the drop-down list

If you don’t see your credit card listed in the drop-down list, it could be because:

  • Your credit card info hasn’t been saved in Chrome and you need to add the credit card.
  • Autofill doesn’t work with that website and you need to enter the credit card info to buy something.
I entered my CVC number, but it didn’t work

If the CVC number you entered wasn’t correct, Chrome temporarily locks you out after two tries. Wait and then try again. If it’s still not working, contact your bank.
