Unfortunately in Croatia it is still not possible to pay in euros. If you pay in cash, only HRK is accepted.

There is an ATM 2 minutes from Gervais Center, close to Hotel Imperial.

The reason for that could be that the email you entered is not valid so please make sure you've put the right email during the account registration on our web-shop. It could have happened also that the confirmation email went to your SPAM folder, so please check that as well.
If none of the above is the case, than please contact us at: support@salsa-adria.hr
