NMI Error 200: Request Declined

What This Means

This error means that NMI is declining the customer's payment method.

Note: This type of generic error can be returned in many cases where NMI declines the payment. Check within your NMI web interface for specific declines and reports by visiting Reports >> All Transactions.

Common Causes For This Error

  • Incorrect credit card number or expiration date
  • Insufficient funds
  • The bank declined based on location
  • The bank's fraud rules blocked the transaction

Suggested Next Steps

  1. Check the customer's information in your payment gateway to determine if the payment simply needs to be updated or retried (see "After Resolving the Issue" below).

  2. Contact the customer to have them add a new payment method and add it to their Scheduled Order.

  3. Once a new payment method is added to the Scheduled Order, the Scheduled Order should be processed with the new payment method.

Adding A New Payment Method for Your Customer?

If you are adding a new payment method for your customer directly to your payment gateway (manually), ensure that you edit the failed Scheduled Order, add a new payment method, and copy the required billing information from the payment gateway directly to their Scheduled Order including:

  • Gateway CustomerId
  • Billing Address
  • Payment Method Description (optional, but strongly suggested because it is used to display the payment method to your customer)

After Resolving The Issue

Once this issue is resolved, you should use the action to Continue Processing the Failed Scheduled Order.
