13. I keep getting an error message when trying to confirm my order... help?

This could be happening due to an error with your payment or address details - It is simple to fix.

The billing address information that you have stored on your CRC account or during checkout, needs to match the address that your payment provider has on record.

Please ensure all the details in our record of your billing address match the details your bank has, it is likely this is your home address.

Also please check your postcode is formulated correctly, numerically and alphabetically correct. Once both addresses are matching you should have no trouble getting through our check out process.
