Authorization Response Codes

The response codes are available in these locations:

When the transaction is denied, the deny_code is available in transaction-related Program API responses and the CST.

This table has the response codes for all networks except Allpoint. See Allpoint response codes below.

Codes marked with an asterisk (*) are success codes. All other codes are deny codes.

01Issuer error.
03Mastercard only. MCC blocked. The MCC is blocked at a product or account level.
04Capture card. The merchant or ATM must retain the card because fraud is suspected.
