Registration & Payments
I am receiving an error message when I try to submit payment.
There are a few reasons you may receive an error:
You are not using a MasterCard or Visa credit card. AspenTech does not accept American Express.
You have entered an incorrect billing address for the credit card being used. Doing so will generate an AVS (address verification scan) error.
You have tried to submit your registration form too many times after receiving the error message. Typically, trying to submit the payment form more than 2 times for the same credit card will result in a fraud error.
We recommend you try to submit your registration again on another day using an accepted credit card type and the correct billing address associated with the card. If you continue to have issues, reach out to the OPTIMIZE event team.
