Why does my online payment fail?

If you are having issues with an online credit card payment, please try the following before contacting our Membership Officer:

• Try a different browser, or Clear Cookies/Cache
Use another browser or clear cookies and cache will help resolve issues. 
• Try making the payment from a different PC/laptop.
It may be that firewall, antivirus, or security settings on the PC are the issue. 
• Try making the payment on a different network home/office.
Sometimes network, proxy, or other security settings block the connection.

In some cases clearing the cache of the page (Ctrl Refresh, or Ctrl Shift Refresh) may fix the problem, or by deleting any cookies related to cog-online.org may resolve the problem. However I suggest you try the other solutions first..
