3. Invalid Card
4. Transaction not authenticated by card issuing bank
5. Netbanking Downtime
6. Card issuer bank Downtime
7. User interrupts the transaction by clicking back button during transaction

How to Solve Transaction Issues
- If you have made a payment, received an acknowledgement from your bank regarding the same and on Merit Store it shows “Pending Payment” or “Failed/Cancelled Payment”, it means that your bank has deducted the amount from your account but has not reached the Merit Store Account. In such a case, contact the bank. Also, in such a case, the amount is refunded back to your account by your bank within a week.
- If you are making a sudden high amount transaction using your card, then the bank may try to block the transaction. In such case, contact your concerned bank and let them know that you genuinely want to make this payment.
- Last but not least, note that you should be able to receive detailed information for any failed or successful transaction from your bank. If a payment fails, do not hesitate to contact your bank and request this information.
