Unable to make an online credit card payment for phone upgrade

I attempted to upgrade my phone and received a confirmation order email and then another email stating there was a payment failure and we were unable to complete your order.

I clicked the link to make the card payment and it gave a message that the credit card couldn't be used.

I contacted customer service many times for assistance but am unable to make the card payment on Verizon's site.  One Help Rep said the problem was with my card.  That is incorrect and I have spent 4 days and 20 hours trying to make the upgrade payment.  Now the payment page link sent to me states "Max order read attempt reached."

Verizon is unable to assist me so far and the representative on the service text stopped responding.
