Has anyone experienced the error below while trying to purchase something from the website?  I have called support 3 days in a row now and they have no idea.  I tried 2 different cards.
 
Credit card transaction failure. Please try again later on. (Error 203) : Other: credit card transaction failure
or
Error 481
 
I am trying to purchase an extended warranty so I am still eligible for the Step-Up program.

    Will they take PayPal for that - (it would be a payment option)
     
    The last time (May this year) I tried to buy from EVGA store, "CC validation failed" (no idea why) 

    I just opted to use my PayPal account, with the same CC - go figure

    203 error means that the bank declined the transaction for no specific reason. 
     
    Generally something in your address or data from your card did not match the records from the financial institution. 
     
    It could also mean that the financial institution did not respond to the payment processor's query to validate the card information.

    It can also be for reasons like not normally making large online purchases or a lot of online transactions for multiple things that are not normal for the card. I had a card declined during Amazon’s prime sale last year because it was odd for me to be making multiple purchases from Amazon over a short window of time.

    As said above make sure everything is current with the card and that you don’t have a transaction limit for online shopping or anything that would prevent it.

    Thanks for the suggestions.  Unfortunately, None of them worked and EVGA's site doesn't have a Paypal option, or I would have used that first.
    I have spent since Sunday 6/24 working on this with sales/support.  I have called my bank and verified my address on my account and on my EVGA account.
     
    6/24 Called EVGA - They said my Zip code was wrong.  Checked my zip code and called back.  EVGA says call tomorrow when office is open.
    6/25 Called EVGA - Said Zip code was wrong again, so I called bank and confirmed address.  Called EVGA back, they say try again tomorrow.
    6/26 Called EVGA - Same procedure, EVGA accounting is looking in to the issue.
    6/27 Called EVGA - Same procedure, EVGA says try calling payment processor, Cybersource, who refused to answer my questions because I wasn't the merchant.  EVGA said they would have IT check on it and to call back Friday 6/28.
     
    Will update tomorrow.

    I GOT IT! 
    I looked through my bank statements and even though my credit card had the correct zip code, my debit card had the wrong zip code.
    The accounts are both through the same bank and share the same login online, but apparently had separate addresses.  I never had a problem purchasing online with it before.

    Glad to hear you got it resolved. I'm sorry that it took this long. We have a processor who has a strict fraud detection system. Error Code 203 is with our AVS or Address Verification System so if one things off you're most likely to receive those errors! Once again, glad to hear that you've made your order! Enjoy it!

    Unfortunately that error isn't an error code our processor lists, I looked a little more and it seems like you were able to purchase today. For faster responses please call or email us.

    Unfortunately as Jeff stated, The error is not on our list and is a general broad error to cover different types of failures for the transaction.

    I have the same issue as well. I’ve done every conceivable concoction of address manipulation that I can think of and I get the 481 error. Capital letters, punctuation, etc and it’s declined. Does my name and address have to match what my bank has AND my EVGA profile? In the EVGA profile you spell out the state, Tennessee in my case, yet no bank spells out the name of the state on your statement account.

    I’m flustered

    Hello,
     
    We received updated information over the last week regarding this error message; The 481 error is unfortunately one that you will not be able to workaround, our payment processor has determined that they are unable to process payments from your account.

    I went to pay for my step-up today and was receiving error 203 again.
     
    After trying many times to get the payment to go through, I figured out that I had to change how I was writing my address from Road to Rd and PA to Pennsylvania.  It makes no sense to have to change some fields from abbreviations and others to abbreviations.
     
    EVGA, I would highly recommend changing your payment processor away from Cybersource.  They are complete garbage.  Just imagine how many people give up without contacting support or coming on the forums.  The EVGA techs don't have the resources to help us either.  I have never had so much trouble making a payment.
     
    The only reason I purchase from EVGA is for the step-up program and after this ordeal I will definitely re-evaluate the program's worth.

    Have you tried to contact your bank to make sure they are not blocking your transaction with fraud protection? Also make sure to do what was done with OPRAH (IE) and check the address on your EVGA Profile to make sure it matches your billing address on your bank account otherwise it can cause the decline or error when ordering.

    I've preemptively called my CC to tell them about a pending online purchase before ... just to make sure it goes through
     
    The Address on your CC must match to the letter with your shipping address
     
    I had abbreviated my address street "Road" once as "Rd" ..... dumb pumpkins ... flagged the sale
     
    Also add any secondary shipping addresses to your CC account ---> like work, if they allow deliveries of employee personal stuff

    I had this also happen.  Call your credit card company.  It's a fraud prevention thing.  You confirm that it's legit and they'll approve the transaction.
