Payment FAQ

Below are the most common payment issues and tips on resolving them.

Declined Credit Card Transactions

  • Your profile address does not match that of the billing address for the credit card. Check that your OSM 2022 address matches your credit card's billing address.
  • Your university or organization credit card requires pre-approval or has a specific list of approved business types for purchases. Check with your organization.
  • You accidentally charged a transaction on your personal credit card instead of the university/organization card. Send an email to [email protected] with details of the situation and someone will be in touch with you within 24 hours.

VAT Identification Number

  • OSM 2022 is incorporated in the United States and therefore does not collect VAT.
