Why has my credit card been declined?
Our order process checks with your bank to validate the zip code and the numerical portion of your credit card billing address.  If your order is declined, please check with your bank to verify your billing address and zip code. 

If your billing address is a PO Box, please list the numeric PO Box number first.  For example PO box 123 should be listed as "123 PO Box" in the address field. 

Please note that any credit card decline due to an address or zip code mismatch will result in a pending authorization being placed on your credit card. This is only a pending authorization and will not actually be posted. It will drop off your credit card in a few days. 

If you continue to have problems please email support@sicovers.com .  We are also available via phone at 1-866-637-2188 Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm MST.
