Why Your Transaction on VTpass Might Fail and What to do

While at VTpass we take every measure to ensure every transaction you carry out is successful; we are equally awake of failed transactions that can occur at times.

The majority of failed transactions are down to network issues or processing errors. In this article, we would explain why transactions on VTpass might fail and what you can do about it.

Network affecting bank payment

Payment might fail if network failure prevents your bank from confirming a transfer you initiated. Sever downtime at your bank might be responsible for this. In some cases, your bank might debit you without VTpass would receiving the payment.

The simple solution to this is to consult your bank in the event of a debit or contact VTpass support to know the status of your transaction. If your transaction hasn’t gone through, it’s best you wait a while, then try again when the network is stable.

Entering wrong card details

This is so common and perfectly understandable. Making mistakes while entering card details such as bank name, card number, CVV, etc. would prevent any transaction from going through.

Solution: simply enter your correct card details to ensure a successful transaction. Alternatively, you can activate VTpass instant wallet funding to save yourself the stress and errors of using the card every time.

Entering wrong dealer details

Similar to the reason above, entering the wrong meter number when paying electricity bills; wrong IUC or smartcard number when subscribing to your decoder, etc. would cause a transaction failure. The system would either reject the payment process, or it would stall.

In this case, the solution is to restart the payment process and enter the correct dealer details. If you have been debited upon entering a wrong dealer detail, kindly contact VTpass support to advice you on what to do.

However, we advise you to ensure the correct dealer details every time as certain payments (for example, payment made for a wrong meter number) CANNOT be refunded.

Service downtime with a service provider

No one can be blamed for this. When a service provider is experiencing downtime, payments for that particular service might fail. For example; if IKEDC is experiencing a service downtime, payments for IKEDC during the downtime would fail.

To resolve this, simply wait until the downtime passes before initiating payment for the service again.

Whatever might be the cause of a failed transaction, we are always there to resolve it for you. Simply contact VTpass support by chatting us live on the website or app, sending a mail to support@vtpass.com or calling 08138752358.

VTpass API: How to Set-up a SUB Account

Perhaps you’re hearing of VTpass sub-account for the first time and you’re wondering, “what’s this one again?” Not to worry; in this article, we would explain what it is and how you can use it.

What is Sub-Account?

VTpass API Sub-Account is a segregated account nested under the main (initial) account which was created on VTpass platform. This feature is to ensure restriction and make sure only the admin (the API agent) have access to perform transactions on the main account.

That is why we created the Sub-Account feature which allows you to have sole control over transactions happening on your account even as different people might have access to it.

This strengthens your account security while at the same time allowing people within your organization to have access to the account for other reasons.

Here are what the Sub-Account can only be used for:

  1. Generate report
  2. View wallet top-up history
  3. View transactions
  4. Generate wallet report

In essence, the sub-account cannot be used to carry out any transactions without your permission. If you are yet to create a sub-account, we advise you to do so immediately. Here’s how:

Why Your Decoder isn’t Reconnected After Subscribing for a GOtv or DStv Package.

It can be annoying not to get your GOtv or DStv viewing immediately after subscribing for a bouquet. That thing dey pain eh! You curl up on the sofa or balance in relaxation mode to catch the latest TV program only to see a blank screen.

The frustration is frustrating.

At VTpass, we are concerned about our users not being able to enjoy their viewing immediately after subscription. That is why we have put together several reasons that can be responsible for this and what you can do to speed up viewing when it happens.

The following are probable reasons why you may not view pictures after subscribing:

gotv and dstv reconnection

Your Decoder is Switched off

If your decoder was not switched on at the time of payment (which is a requirement for auto re-connection), viewing might not be reconnected automatically. Whenever you wish to renew GOtv or DStv subscription, always ensure that your decoder is turned on to ensure smooth reconnection. 

Solution: When viewing doesn’t show as a result of this, a reconnection request has to be sent to Multichoice before you can be reconnected. Kindly contact VTpass support to do this. Alternatively, you can also follow the RESET instruction on the TV screen.

Downgrade/Upgrade of Package

Reconnection would be delayed if you have just changed your package (upgrade/downgraded your normal monthly bouquet). For example, you normally subscribe DStv Family then changed to DStv Access or vise versa.

Solution: In this case, Multichoice has to be contacted to confirm the upgrade/downgrade of your package. Contact VTpass support, we would handle this for you.

Payment to a Wrong Smartcard number

“Oops!”, that’s the word, but yes, this can happen. If you made subscription payment to a wrong smartcard or IUC number, your decoder would not be subscribed, obviously. Gbesee!

But not to panic, there is a way out.

Solution: Simply call up Multichoice support lines (+234 908 236 8533 for DStv or +234 803 904 4688 for GOtv) to request a transfer of funds.

You will need to provide the identification document and proof of payment then send an email to Multichoice stating the wrong smartcard you paid to and the correct smartcard number the payment should be transferred to.

Network issues

The familiar problem with anything online in Nigeria is the occasional bad network and really, no one can help it. If reconnection is been delayed as a result of network jam, the only solution is to wait a few minutes and your decoder would resume viewing.

For GOtv, you can always do a manual reset yourself when this happens. Kindly follow the instructions broadcasted on GO channel 1.

We hope this information helps someone catch up on TV entertainment faster. Subscribe your GOtv or DStv to never miss out. For further inquiries, kindly chat VTpass support through the web or mobile app or call 08138752358.
