Hi David C, 


This is maybe a silly question but have you tried it without spaces or dashes? Just one long number? You'll also want to make sure that you have selected the correct card type.


It is pretty unusual for cards to only have 12 digits. Most debit cards have 16 digits. This could be the problem too. 


Let us know if you're still having this problem and I can get someone to look into it with you.
