Q.My credit card appears to be rejected.
A.Approval of the credit card information you enter is performed by the credit card company. Please check if the credit card information contains any error. If you still continue to have trouble using the card, please contact your card company.
Q.What is security code?
A."Security code" is the number printed on your credit card besides the credit card number.
Because the security code is not included in the magnetized information of the card, it cannot be known to third parties even if the magnetized information is compromised, as long as the physical card itself is not stolen.
Since only the card holder knows the security code, using the code enhances the security of payment transactions The security code is printed on different parts of the card depending on the type of the card. Please see the diagrams below to find out the specific location.

* You must enter your security code to purchase tickets. Please use a credit card with security code printed.
* If you cannot find the security code or are not sure which number is your security code, please request assistance from your card company (contact information is given on the back of your card.)
Credit cards from some issuer companies may not be used for purchase.
* The PIN (password) number you use for your card is NOT your security code. They are separate numbers.

It is not reflected on the credit card statement right after the purchase, but the purchase has been completed successfully when you get the purchase number. The purchase contract is valid then, so you can go to the theater with the purchased ticket.
