    Common Merchant Account Response Codes

    In This Article:

      Sometimes processing credit cards can fail. There are various reasons why this can happen. The response codes for these transactions can sometimes be vague; however, some of the response codes are explicit. For example, if it says "Declined", either the supporter had insufficient funds for a debit card or insufficient credit limit for a credit card.

      These are the most common reasons for the failure of a credit card transaction:

      • Insufficient funds for a debit card or checking account.
      • Insufficient credit limit for a credit card.
      • The credit card account will not allow "card not present" transactions.
      • Account Number was entered incorrectly.
      • Expiration Date was entered incorrectly.
      • The card has expired.
      • CVV code was entered incorrectly.
      • Your Merchant Services account was incorrectly configured.
      • Card was reported lost or stolen.
