ArgoFire Response Codes

ArgoFire Response Values

Result Response Field Definitions (Error Codes)

The list below contains result codes returned in the Result response field of the API or GUI AuthCode field.   A decline returned by the payment processor for the API response field is value twelve (12) or thirteen (13). An approval is value zero (0). Any other value is an error code, which is returned by ArgoFire and not by the payment processor. Please note that when programmatically validating a transaction’s result, from the API, this value should be used instead of any response message describing the result. I.e. do not use RespMSG or Message response fields, as these values may vary. Please note that this list is subject to change without prior notice.
