  • Credit card problems? If the payment does not go through, note the following. The error message 2000/2100: The card issuer declined the authorisation indicates that the card-issuing company or bank for some reason does not let you pay to Luottokunta card payment service.

    • the company/bank finds the purchase suspect or detects unsusual behaviour from your side, or that

    • the card is not covered.

    Please call your card company/bank, to find out the reason. They will be able to help you solve the problem.
