Errors appear when I try to confirm my order at the checkout.

From time to time we experience temporary problems with our systems. If you can't checkout, it may be as a result of one of these problems.

Errors at checkout:

  1. Error: Sorry the card number you have entered is invalid.
    Resolution: Please make sure your typing the card number correctly. Please also be aware that Tesco Extra does not accept electron or solo cards.
  2. Error: there has been a problem confirming your order. Please try again later or contact Customer Services.
    Resolution: From time to time we experience temporary problems with our systems. We would advise you to try again later.
  3. Error: The issue number you supplied is invalid.
    Resolution: Please remember that we only need issue numbers for Maestro cards, if your card is Visa, American Express or Mastercard please do not enter an issue number, please leave the box blank, even if your card has an issue number.
  4. Your card has not been authorised, please contact your issuing bank.
    Resolution: There has been a problem authorising your card. We would advise you to contact your issuing bank to resolve this.
  5. The security code on your card is invalid.
    Resolution: We ask for the security number from your payment card to prevent the fraudulent use of your account. This is printed on your card but isn't in the magnetic strip or embossed so only the person who has the card knows the number.
  6. Error: Expiry date on your card is invalid.
    Resolution: Does your card expire at the end of the month? If so it will not verify on the site as it will expire before we take payment and we will not be able to verify your new card as it will not be activated until your current card expires.
