Sony Refurbisshed Payment isssue


Novice Member
Hey, I don't know if it's relevant but I was trying to buy a refurbished from Sony ( They have some TVs available today)
But the payment system is not workig, tried different cards (Barclays and Revolut). I get a transaction notification and then immediatly return of amount and website says "Vendor Authentication issue". called support but they are saying refurbished can only be bought online they can't do the transaction over the phone. :(

Anyone else bought refurbished from Sony and faced similar issue ?

There was a major Akamai outage earlier today that affected a lot of web traffic. Some pretty big companies were affected including banks and payment clearing systems. That may have been the reason you had a problem.
