Q: Why do I keep getting the Zip Code verification error with my Credit Card and what should I do?

The Zip Code verification checks that the Zip Code you enter with your credit card information is the Zip Code that your bank has on record for your Credit Card. This check is to help prevent unauthorized people using your credit card to shop on-line. This security check is for your benefit, but sometimes it can be a nuisance. If you keep getting the Zip Code error, even when you are entering the correct Zip Code, it is probable that your bank is not on-line with our credit card processing system. In this case it is not that your Zip Code is incorrect, it is that we are not getting a response from your bank, and our system requires a positive verification before allowing the order to go through. What to do: First ensure your Zip Code is correct (Have you moved recently? Is the credit card statement sent to a different address?). If you are still having the problem, try a different credit card. If you are using Visa, try a MasterCard, for example. Call us at 888-545-2628 or e-mail us at: jon@centraluniforms.com and we can attempt to correct any issue you are having. If you are still unable to complete your order we recommend you print out your shopping cart page (with all the products you are ordering and your shipping address) and either fax it to us at 215-413-1262, or mail it to us with a check, to:

Central Uniforms, 1653 The Fairway-Suite #220, Jenkintown, PA 19046
