The vanilla mastercard needs to be registered online BEFORE it is authorized to do any online purchases.  To the left on the same screen that you saw your balance, you should see a "Register Your Card" option, after you take a few moments to do this, your card is immediately authorized for online purchases, enhanced security you know...:-)

There are always issues with Vanilla Credit Cards, usually the cards are authorized for purchases once it gets activated at the cash.

actually, I've used mine to do that and it worked once, now it won't work at all and I KNOW I have a balance higher than the purchase. I find that it cant verify the info for some reason. I'm in the middle of looking for a solution right now. hahaha

About three months ago, MasterCard made it mandatory to register your card for online purchases for security reasons.  Eventhough it may work at your corner store, it won't work online unless you register the card, most cashiers aren't aware of this new security feature and don't mention it...:-)
