payment card validation failed

Just launched our online store for School Lunch Deliveries. All going well after a few config hiccups. During our own testing we have ordered and made payment successfully, then tested another transaction using the same credit card and on the Checkout screen after selecting Place Order, there is an error displayed saying "Payment Card Validation failed."


There is money on the card, we have received other successful orders.


This has happened to another customer also.


Please advise. Thank you!
