My customers are receiving error code 65 during checkout and the transaction is declined? What does this mean?
This is a common error code for the Authorize.net payment gateway. It means the 3 digit number (CVV2 code) on the back of the credit card did not pass validation.
Here is a link for Authorize.net error codes:
Error Code: 65
Response Reason Text: This transaction has been declined.
The transaction was declined because the merchant configured their account through the Merchant Interface to reject transactions with certain values for a Card Code mismatch.
