Of no use to you now but I'd suggest the reason you had a problem was that you had parked the van too far away from the barrier.
Whenever using this style of aire payment system, drive right up to the barrier, then the system that realises there is a vehicle there will register and not allow the barrier to close until the system is cleared, that is how you can drive through as slowly as you like without the barrier coming down on your vehicle.
