Why was my Visa debit rejected when I tried to sign up?

From what we’ve gathered, this could be one of two reasons:

  1. Charges to Visa debit cards need bank approval to go through. Some banks are overzealous about any company they don’t recognize and block charges they consider suspicious;
  2. Some Visa debit cards only work on US charges. While we operate in US funds, we are based in Canada.

Either way, the easiest solution is contacting you bank and informing them that you are aware of and approve of a charge from Comic Bento, a Canadian company, and that this will be a recurring charge for as long as you subscribe.
