This error surfaces if the google chrome browser doesn't have the cookies enabled or particularly disabled for the tyro hosted payments. This is usually due to google chrome plugins like an ad blocker preventing the cookies from certain webpages.


Google chrome browser needs to have cookies enabled for tyro payments to work.

  2. At the top right, click More More and then Settings.
  3. At the bottom, click Advanced.
  4. Under "Privacy and security," click Content settings.

Additional Information

In some cases If the issue is created by google chrome plugins as Adblocker you have to enable third-party cookies in Google Chrome (Mac):

  1. Open Chrome preferences click on Settings, then Show Advanced Settings.
  2. Under Privacy, click on Content Settings.
  3. Make sure "Block third-party cookies and site data" is not checked.

It is also recommended to remove the Adblocker plugin if possible as this has proven to have degraded Vend's performance.
