Billing Question: OpenAI verified my debit card but then declined it

I didn’t find any Billing category in the forum so I hope this is the right one.

Anyhow, I want to add funds to my API account.

I added my payment method, my debit card,a VISA, it was approved by the OpenAI account (it was added succesfuly to my account) and on my bank’s side I received a succesful verification notice, yet, at the moment of confirming the payment (mere $5), it was freaking declined.

Wtf? Why is this?

All card details are correct and double checked.

You’d have to check that with your bank or card provider.

Also, make sure that you in a region where OpenAI supports service.
