Why isn't Che Guevara working?

 I got a Visa gift card recently, and I don't want to use it at a store, I could just as easily use cash, so, I was thinking about what to buy online, and Che Guevara T-shirts were the first thing that came to mind. So, I want over to The Che Store, and got the t-shirts, and proceeded to checkout. I filled out all the forms, and then when I hit enter, it said "Sorry, and Error has occurred". I tried this multiple times, and the same message appeared every time. Help anyone?

Here's some likely problems:

3.  If The Che Store doesn't like your credit card number AND they haven't set up their system correctly.  Normally, it should return an error message that says something like "Invalid card number," but some stores don't pay much attention to error messages when they set up. 
By the way, your card number is probably fine, but they might be using an out-of-date database to automatically reject potentially fake numbers.

2.  Your VISA gift card needs to be activated and it hasn't been done yet.  Some credit-card gift cards need you to call or visit their website to activate it before you can use it.  There may be about a 3 dollar fee.

1.  You have scripts disabled or your security settings set too high.  If you're using a plugin like noscript, you'll have to enable scripts for their website.  You'll also probably have to pay attention enable scripts for their credit-card processor as well.
One other thing... the best thing to do would be to contact The Che Store and ask them for help.  They know their system, and they can probably take the order over the phone if you continue to have trouble.

Keep a CLOSE eye on the balance and charges on your card....I have seen this happen numerous times where it didn't LOOK like the order went through, but it did, and I ended up having to cancel 2-6 EXTRA orders...

 Yeah, it doesn't say that there have been any charges, but it could still happen...

Che is dead. But I don't think that's your problem, perhaps the site only takes real credit-cards?

Che thinks e-commerce is for filthy capitalist pigs who will be first against the wall when the revolution comes.
