Checkout Questions

Why is my credit card being declined? There are no issues with my card.

The card is not going through due a discrepancy between your billing address and the address your bank has on file for this card. Please make sure you have the correct billing address, which is exactly as it appears on your credit card statement.

Please note that you may see a pending amount on your card. It has not been charged twice. The transaction that happened is not an actual charge but a pre-authorization from a failed payment attempt due to incorrect billing address. This is out of our control, but don’t worry! It will automatically drop within 3-5 business days, depending on your bank. 

I cannot checkout, can I call and pay over the phone instead?

Please connect our customer service team at support@naturalhealthmarket.ca if you are having any issues checking out.

Do you accept pre-paid credit cards?

Since there is no address associated with these cards, they usually will not work. You should attach the cards to your Paypal account, and try purchasing using Paypal.

Can I use my American (or other non-Canadian) credit card on your website?

Since there isn’t an option to enter a non-Canadian country as a billing address, they won’t work directly. Please create a Paypal account, add your non-Canadian credit card, and check out using this option.
