aliexpress Payment failed Reason System error

I’m in Canada, I just joined aliexpress last week and today tried to order with my visa debt card, and it says
Payment failed
Reason System error

I have my address on there, phone#(does it need to be verified ??), security Q’s, I turned off adblocker, noscript, ghostry,

And still have that error. Tired 2-3 times in a row, then hours later same thing. I never had any emails saying something went wrong, or someone/thing tried to access my account and failed.

I’m assuming its supposed to be basically instant confirmation.

Any idea’s? What am I missing ? I hope this is something simple, and that my visa/debt works for this, otherwise back to ebay.

Reminds me of trying to use my visa/debt for stuff in 2010 or whatever when it was new and sites didn’t recognize my visa/debt.

edit: I tried with 2nd option, not an exclusive visa/mastercard
and this time it loaded something and asked visa or my bank, and it came back payment failed.

I suspect its my CIBC visa/debt card is still a piece of garbage and mot all places can accept it like a ‘real’ visa card.
