How do I ensure my EFILive Order passes validation?

  1. All VIN Licenses, Tuning Options and Controller auth-code orders go through a comprehensive validation process. Only valid serial/auth codes will be given the option to add products to the cart and proceed to check-out.
  2. Refer to Validation Help for more information.

What if my Order Status Says "Manual Intervention Required"?

When an order fails automated processing, our staff will need to manually attend to that order.  Orders requiring manual intervention are typically:

  1. Physical products that our staff need to pick, pack and ship.
  2. License products that do no fill automatically, such as Stream Licenses.
  3. Automated licenses and auth-code products where EFILive experiences a systems outage. 

EFILive will process these order during New Zealand business hours.  If you have any questions about your order please contact us at; or call us at +64 (9) 534 1188. EFILive is located in New Zealand and our regular business hours are 09:00 through 17:00 Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays).

What if there is an error processing payment?

There are a number of possible reasons why transactions cannot be processed by the EFILive store;

  1. There are insufficient funds on your credit card for the purchase.
  2. Your Credit Card number was correct, but your CVN and/or Expiry Date were incorrect.

  4. Your account in the EFILive Store contains incomplete shipping address details.
  5. Some banks and credit card institutions automatically decline international transactions made via the Internet. You will need to contact your bank or credit card institution to authorize the transaction. EFILive Limited is an international company based in New Zealand.
