    Are you trying to buy on the Canadian site or the US?

    Usually it's to fight fraud. If you lose your physical card, and don't report it for whatever reason, the person who finds it may not know what zip it registered to that card. It might prevent the card from being used.

    A zip code match is very standard for almost all online purchases, at least in the US.

    The web site is probably designed for US-only purchases because there's a separate side for Canadian purchases.

    That said, you might just try picking a valid US zip code at random to see if your purchase goes through or if it blocks you.

    Hello @kingfish

    Thank you for reporting this issue to the community, although I apologize for any frustration or inconvenience experienced.

    I have reported this behavior to our teams for further investigation and resolution, unfortunately though I do not have an ETA on when this will be resolved.

    In the meantime, if you haven't already, I would recommend contacting Quicken Support for assistance with making the purchase.

    Thank you,
