Waders: If you encounter an issue with your waders, please contact our Customer Service team with the requested information from our Returns and Repairs page.

PSD2 is a new European payment service directive created to give people more protection against electronic payment fraud.

From September 2019, online card payments will require an extra authentication step at checkout. For example, you may need to enter a one-time code sent to your phone or tablet.

The Patagonia team is working hard to prepare our website for PSD2. However, you may have problems with some card payments. This is because banks control some of the steps in the new process and it is possible that they are not fully prepared to comply with this requirement.

If this is the case, we recommend trying an alternative payment method, such as PayPal or a bank transfer. And, as always, the Patagonia Customer Service team is happy to help if you have any issues while checking out.
