Why is there a problem processing my donation?

There are multiple reasons your donation may not be processed. Check the following:

  • Ensure your credit/debit card allows international use.
  • US, UK, and Canadian cards may only be used within their respective countries.
  • Some virtual cards may not be accepted. Using a physical card may resolve the issue.
  • Your bank may be blocking your donation. Try contacting your bank to request assistance.

If you are experiencing technical difficulty making an online donation, please go to archive.org/donate on another browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc) or device. Don’t forget to click on the Donate button after you select the payment method. Also, if you attempted to make a donation using the Credit Card button, please try using Paypal if you’d like, or vice versa.

Another option for you would be to donate directly on our PayPal page here: https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/internetarchive. You may also consider making a wire transfer.
