Determine why your SEPA payment failed.
If you use direct bank transfers through the Single Euro Payment Area (SEPA) as a payment method, follow this guide to learn more about failed or declined payments, and disputed charges.
What if my subscription renewal fails?
When your subscription automatically renews, we’ll try to process your payment using your SEPA information. If we can’t renew your subscription on the first try, we won’t try to process your payment a second time.
If your subscription payment fails, the subscription becomes “past due” and can expire. You can't use the service until you reactivate it. To reactivate, please contact us so we can help update your payment method.
For more details on subscription expiration time frames, visit Why did my renewal payment fail?.
Why was my SEPA payment declined?
Your SEPA payment can be declined for the following reasons:
- You don’t live in and your bank account isn't located in one of the SEPA zone countries
- You entered your IBAN number incorrectly
- There weren't enough funds in your bank account
For more help about a declined payment, contact your bank.
If a disputed charge ends in your favor, and SEPA is your payment method, your bank may require that we remove the payment method from your account.
To check if your SEPA payment method is still connected to your Squarespace account, review the Payment Information panel.
If your website subscription expired, follow the steps to reactivate your site.
