My Credit Card was not accepted on the Asset Store. How can I make a payment?

Symptoms

  • I am attempting to purchase an asset on the Asset Store but my card is being declined.
  • I would like to buy an asset, but I am getting an error message and cannot complete the purchase.

Cause

Sometimes, transactions can fail during the purchasing process. This can be frustrating when you want to purchase something at a certain time. This transaction failure can be for a variety of reasons, however, it may be that you receive a 'declined' message, even though you are certain that your card should be available for use.

Resolution

If you are having problems purchasing an asset on the Asset Store, firstly, check that the billing details listed on your Unity account, match those of you Credit Card. This includes your address, postal/zip code and country.

Also make sure that there is nothing blocking the purchase on your own machine set up.

If you are still having problems after attempting the above, try using PayPal as an alternative payment method. This can often be a successful and easy payment form to use. Alipay is also an option for users based in China.

If you continue to have issues purchasing on the Asset Store, please contact us.

    for future reference. Just had this issue. I had a VPN on my mac. Even though it was set to UK transaction was refused. Monzo card and Paypal/Barclays. Turned VPN off and it worked.

    Transaction failed twice, checked everything and info is good. Super confused and stressing because the sale is ending and the discount are a huge motivator on the purchase as a first time user. While following up on trying to resolve the issue I find out from my bank I have been double charged even though the Unity Store declined the transaction and the resubmit. Super frustrated, confused and now have an uncomfortable amount of money tied up. Kinda regretting deciding to go the Unity route atm with this being part of my first day of experience.

    After waiting half a week for a responce from customer service I received two different answers as to the cause of my issue. The first was that there was a transaction refusal on the side of my bank. As I had contacted my bank immediately after trying to go through the Unity Store side trouble shooting I knew this to be false, the Unity Store had billed me twice and had I not put stops on the payments would have gone through according to my banker.


    Customer service then informs me that new/1st time users have a purchase limit cap of $100. This is disclosed/documented no where accessible to a new user. Not even as part of the transaction refusal prompt which tells you check your information and resubmit, each time resulting in a charge to your payment method. That is ridiculous, a user could mess up their bank account seriously when going into this loop and have no idea why.

    The in regards to the lost opportunity to participate in the sale savings due to these undisclosed terms and long customer service reply times the official response given "We run sales all the time so just wait for the next one." Lost time, financial funds being locked up in the store improper charges, and the solution is spend more money or wait around and hope the items you need pop up on sale again an indeterminate amount of time later.  Honestly one of the worst customer service responses I have seen in my life.

    All in all extremely discouraging as a new user. I can not recommend the store front at all after this experience.

    I bought an asset but had my VPN on, as Brian Clear said this does not work and I got an error. The problem I'm having though is the money is gone from my bank account.

    I opened a support ticket last night, no reply back yet.

    Have I screwed myself or is this salvageable, preferably before the deadline of the black friday sale?

    Hi all,

    My apologies for the inconvenience caused.

    If your internet is contacted to VPN or firewall, please disconnect and try to purchase the asset again.

    Just to make you aware, every time you make an purchase you are emailed a Unity Invoice. If, however, you didn't receive an Invoice from Unity, it's highly unlikely we have actually charged you. Sometimes, the amount is held before the transaction is confirmed. This means that the money is essentially in limbo.

    Please contact the card company/Paypal to find out the reason why the transactions fail. Sometimes, it can be something blocking the card from using it on Unity.

    I tried to purchase 2 asset packs and was declined. My card company said that it was run through twice. It said the first once was successful and the second was declined but it is still showing pending on my credit card statement and i haven't received the assets in "My Assets" page. How do i receive these assets or clear the charge from my card?

    the error message stated:

    Unfortunately, we are unable to process your transaction at this time. Please double check your billing details, try a new credit card, or contact your bank.

    When contacting support, please include the following information(show):

    Hi Eric, 

    Thanks for the comment, 

    I've checked that you were able to purchase the asset successfully after then. It seems like your payment transaction failed to be charged due to risk rejected error that can be caused by VPN or Proxy setup. 

    Please reach out to us anytime if you need any further assistance later.

    I made several attempts over the Black Friday deal period to make a $160+ purchase. That's now costing around $288.

    I have checked with the bank and they confirmed that there was enough funds to cover the transaction and also that it was not declined on their end.

    It is EXTREMELY difficult to find a contact number for unity 3d. This Black Friday purchase was on the table for a limited time and I was not able to proceed.

    I would like help in this matter in 2 areas. 1. An actual contact number to unity to handle purchase issues like this in the future and 2. The discounted price of my cart during the Black Friday period that your system refused to except (if possible).

    I have not changed the items in my cart to make it easier for a possible solution to be achieved.

    Thank you for your time.

    My company has a strict policy against credit card purchases and prefers to have an invoice created prior to making a payment. What do you recommend? Are there 3rd party resellers we can go through? We're looking to get 3 annual licenses for Unity Pro + Pixyz plugin.

    Hey Guys,

    I've created a support ticket #761569.  I'm experiencing the same problems as everyone else, I keep getting the error

    "Unfortunately, we are unable to process your transaction at this time. Please double check your billing details, try a new credit card, or contact your bank."

    I've been charged 4 or 5 times just to have the funds reverted and the asset will never show up in my account. 

    I've tried everything, disabled my vpn, tried paypal, talked to my bank. But my bank said they've let all the transactions go through and you guys keep canceling it for some reason.  Is there anything I can do to resolve the issue? I'm on a tight schedule. Thanks so much for your help!

    To anyone whos getting this error:

    "Unfortunately, we are unable to process your transaction at this time. Please double check your billing details, try a new credit card, or contact your bank."

    Unity explained to me all my purchases were getting declined due to suspected fraud, possibly my IP address is flagged for some reason. Anyway just use a different computer in your house, I ended up using my phone and now I can buy stuff again! Hope this helps someone! :)

    Happening to me too.   Filed a ticket.  I'm sure you all will look into it and resolve this, but this appears to be a fairly widespread problem.  Can't you fix the underlying issue so that this doesn't keep happening to people?  You should not be declining transactions that the bank has approved, ever.

    Same error, no cause; no vpn or firewall, credit card is approving the transactions but it's not going through. The first time I bought anything it went through without a hitch. 

    Followed the suggestion of another user, and used my phone, no idea why I had to use my phone though.

    Hi Jesse, 

    Thanks for the comment, 

    Sorry to hear that you had an issue during purchase process at asset store. 

    Looking into your transaction records, it failed to be charged with message "refused, do not honour" but not sure what was triggering this transaction error from your side. 

    Now I can see your recent transaction went through successfully and purchase was done. Please let us know via support@unity3d.com if you have any other issue with this purchase, and we will try our best to investigate it further.

    I've had issues every time I've made a purchase. Made sure the money was in the bank, paid from the bank debit, bank fraud department flagged it every time for over a year. This last time, it was declined it was stopped by Visa, even buying a gift card to use was still blocked not only on Unity but even on Procedural Worlds to try to make part of my purchase directly from them. There are assets I would really love to be using, but if I can not purchase how can I do that? For now I settled for purchasing the assets I needed from Kitbash3d and gave up on the Unity Assets for now, but I would like Gaia Pro, Adventure Creator and a handful of others and it's impossible.
