Payment issue encountered at Tesla Shop checkout (Error code: KR36)

Payment issue encountered at Tesla Shop checkout (Error code: KR36)

I'm trying to buy some items from the Tesla Shop, but I'm getting the following error after trying with 2 different credit cards:

There was a problem processing your payment. Please check and try again or contact your bank. For further assistance, contact (Error code #KR36)

I called my credit card company and they said they didn't see any charge attempts on their side, which means it must be on Tesla's side. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

I still cannot get through AND I also can't order the Wall Charger at the Service Center. lol

I'm amazed that it's this hard to hand over my money to Tesla. This hasn't been a very good first experience for me since I'm a new owner! :(

I have the same issue. I tried with 2 different credit cards.

mastersyl | 2018年7月12日

I too am experiencing this error with multiple cards and shipping addresses.

ioannis.nousias | 2018年8月31日

Just a me too. Multiple cards, multiple devices and browsers. Bank says everything checks fine on their end, check with the merchant. No response from

That is normal when using credit cards. Better accept Bitcoin payments.

Same problem here.. emailed and also called.. They could not help me on the phone they said my email was forwarded somewhere... I used discover card and Discover said that the transaction was authorized but then Tesla did not complete the transaction.

Bit amateur to have this issue at a company this size..

Apparently the Tesla shop is still offline. Have been trying every day for the past week.

chrismon | 2018年11月16日

I'm having this problem today too... tried several cards from different banks, and also tried on different devices, different IP Addresses, no matter what I do I get that same error code.

chrismon | 2018年11月16日

UPDATE: I contacted online sales and they responded to my email in about an hour telling me they fixed something on my account and to try again. I went back into the store, logged in under my Tesla account, and the transaction went through first try. :)

Same issue here. Tesla online sales do not even respond after writing 2email during last 2 weeks. Very poor service.

winston102959 | 2018年11月17日

Same issue here all day even using other credit cards from different banks. Trying to order a Keyfob. I sent an email to the with no response.

geoffrey.bell | 2019年2月27日

ashleydelea | 2019年3月19日

I'm having the same problem. Anyone know what the problem is?

Use Firefox web browser, Tesla webpage has issues with safari and other web browsers.

jkdman123 | 2019年5月23日

I am trying to order a 14-50 adapter for my new Model 3 and it doesn't matter what browser I use (Safari on iOS, IE or Firefox on Windows), when I go to checkout I get the spinning wheel of death forever and I can't complete the transaction. Not very encouraged about my first buying experience!!!
