I wanted to order the Apple Watch online. When I typed my bank card details the answer was "something went wrong"... or something like this. I realised there was a mistake in the system because I didn't change the address to my new address. After I changed the old address to the right address and the system rejected my application because my credit score is not enough for the minimum. I checked online my credit score and it's not bad. I've never missed a payment.
Is it can be a problem that I tried a few times with the wrong address? When can I try again?

If it is due to too many attempts it's best to leave it a couple of weeks before you try again online, but it might be worth you calling to see if customer services can override it for you.

Credit checking (with any organisation extending credit) usually involves address verification so if it doesn't match up it's pretty much a certainty it will decline.
As has been said, leave it a couple of weeks or possibly a month before you try again.
Oh and the credit score you can see on Equifax, Experian or TransUnion (formerly Callcredit) isn't a guarantee you'll get any specific credit agreement as this depends on the lender's credit decision procedures which they won't discuss with customers.
Good luck and remember, all good things come to those who wait.....
