Issue with card payment only online, but ok on app.


Hello SBB, I hope everything is good today. Could you please guide me how to purchase the Swiss 1/2 Fare card from the SBB app? I am able to buy train tickets but I cannot find a way to do it via the app. 
I tried to buy it on the webpage as well, but I'm getting an error message with the card. (I find this weird since I was able to buy every ticket from the app and I already checked with my bank it's activated/authorized for online purchases and with money in the account)


Thanks a lot! 

Have a nice day.
