Since 2018 it has been widespread practice by credit card companies to use 2-factor authentication.

This means that in addition to having to provide your card’s CCV 3-digit number on the back of the card, you will need to be using a card that has an added layer of security such as a OTP (one time password) that is sent to you by SMS or you may be referred to your bank or card issuer’s portal or app where you will need to enter a further password (one that you have previously chosen).

If you are having trouble with the store it may be because your card is not set up with 2-factor authentication. So have a chat to your bank, get this issue sorted and try again. And fingers crossed then it will work.

We do accept debit cards with a 16 digits card number.

Each subscription to the Peaceful Pill eHandbook allows the subscriber to access the book on up to 3 devices and a cookie is set in order to identify these devices.

Therefore, it is important that you allow to set a cookie in your browser. Browsers usually allow this automatically. You can learn how to allow cookies on various browsers here.

Also, please be aware that when using 'private browsing' or 'incognito mode' on some browsers, as well as the Tor Browser, each session is counted as coming from a different device since this does not allow setting the said cookie.

If you have allowed the to set a cookie but still get an error message, it may be that your anti-virus or clean-up program is wiping the cookie. Without the cookie Yudu will read each subsequent log in as unique (new computer), eventually locking you out when the allocation limit is reached.

Exit is unable to offer personalized advice on a subscriber’s unique security settings. In most cases, a program’s ‘Help’ files should contain the information required.

However, if you are locked out we can reset your allocations, so contact us.
