I logged out of Netflix on all devices (computers, firestick, tv, etc.) and then waited 3 MONTHS. Then I tried again and my credit card payment went through. Mind you I had also done this at least once in the past and it had not gone through then. I can only guess that they let a % of new credit card subscriptions in a month and then try to make everyone else buy their Netflix gift card by saying their credit card transactions won't go through. If weren't for specific shows that are only on Netflix, I would refuse to do business with them. I am still dissatisfied what I went through to sign up. It does feel dishonest, and I am weary about what's going to happen when I have to update my credit card for payment.

I was stuck at the payment (step 3) option too. I managed to go back to the Netflix home page and view my account settings since I was partially set up. I was hoping to input my credit card there. When I filled in my phone number, Netflix said it had texted me a confirmation code and to enter it. It's been 2+ hours and I have not received any text. I also tried the option of having Netflix call me with the code to activate my account. I got a message saying it had called, yet no calls came to my phone and it has been 2+ hours. Something is not working on Netflix's end. Phone calls, text messages, and credit card transactions are not going thru. I stayed on the phone with my credit card company while entering my payment information. They keep telling me no transaction is coming thru on their end, even when they check the declined transactions. It' s just not appearing. Netflix is shooting blanks.
