4. My transaction failed, but my bank shows money is taken out, what do I do?

As we have rigorous security checks to ensure safe and secure payments, our Payment Gateway will decline transactions that fail these checks.

The most common cause of a failed transaction is when the billing address and postcode entered during checkout did not match the credit/debit card's registered address and postcode. 

We advise our customers to enter your payment card's registered address and postcode into the "Billing Address" section. You can enter a desired Shipping address different to the Billing address at Checkout. 

Your bank statement may show the failed transaction money amount leaving your account, please rest assured that this will be reverted to you by your bank during working hours the next day. If you have any questions please contact us at hello@melonandstarfish.com

8. I have entered my tracking code at www.royalmail.com but the message says "The system is currently unable to confirm the status of your item with reference XX XXXX XXXX XGB . Please try again later". What do I do?

For some services, including Signed For 1st Class / 2nd Class, Royal Mail scan items twice. They usually update the status when the item was received at the start of its journey and when it's delivered. Therefore, depending on the service, this could mean the status of your item does not change/get updated for a few days. Don't worry though, it's on its way.
