General Decline errors

General credit card decline errors from Authorize.net may have a Response Reason Code "2" and Response Reason Text "This transaction has been declined." General declines are fairly common, but a high rate of decline with this error is worth investigating further with your payment gateway and processor to rule out any issues with your merchant account. If you notice the declines happening with a specific card issuing bank, you may want to contact that bank to find out more information. 

Reasons for a general decline include: 

  • Insufficient funds in the cardholder's account.
  • The card issuing bank does not allow Internet transactions on the card.
  • The card is invalid (for example, it is cancelled).
  • The card requires verbal authorization for transactions.
  • The merchant has been blocked from charging this card for payment.
