Paya: 000051 Insufficient Funds

What This Means

Insufficient funds. Not enough money available on card to authorize transaction.

Note: Paya provides Master Error Code lists from all processors within their support knowledgebase here.

Suggested Next Steps

  1. Suggested action from Paya: Please have the Card holder call their issuing bank. They should be able to find the number on the back of the card.

  2. Contact the customer to see if the current payment method can be funded and retried.

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

  4. 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 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 Restart Processing the Failed Scheduled Order.
