ResponseCode Property

Additional error code returned by some gateways.

Data Type


Default Value



This field contains the actual response code as returned by the Gateway. Unlike the TransactionApproved property, this ResponseCode property provides more details about why a transaction was declined. Therefore, it is recommended that developers check the ResponseCode as well as the TransactionApproved property. The Point of Sale system should evaluate this response code and NOT the ResponseText to determine nature of a response message. The current (at the time of this release) response codes for the supported Gateways are listed below. Please see the individual specifications for each Gateway (available from the Gateway itself) for an updated list of these codes.

Authorize.Net: (works with Authorize.net, ECX, MPCS, Planet Payment, and RTWare)

1 (number 1) = Approved, GoodThis is a transaction that is approved and charged.

T = TicketThis is returned when an Authorize-Only or AVS-Only transaction is good.
F or 0 = FailureThe number zero "0" or the letter "F" indicates that the transaction failed. A more detailed message will be available in the ResponseText field.
Other CodeAny other non-zero, non-null codes should be interpreted as success for compatibility with future response codes.
