Why did my order request fail?

Here are some possible reasons:

  • The price timed out. Please note that you have 15 seconds to confirm your purchase. Additionally, the time required to confirm an order also depends on your network connection, so this may vary by a few seconds.

  • Your order exceeded the purchase limit or was below the minimum amount.

  • You do not have any eligible credit/debit card in your Google Pay account. Please add another card and ensure that it was locally-issued.

  • Your card issuer declined the transaction.
