That last line means that you have set up your Authorize.net account  
to reject cards that do not have the correct billing address. This is  
called AVS (Address Verification Service) -- In Authorize.net, look  
under "Account Settings", then "Address Verification Service" (in the  
"Security Settings" section).

You will see one of those messages (or something similar) every time a  
charge is rejected by Authorize.net (AVS Error, card code error, card  
declined, etc.)
