Why did I get result code 2?

Issue
PayPal returned result code 2 - Invalid tender type.

Cause
Your merchant bank account doesn't support the credit card type that was submitted.

Solution
Verify that your API call specifies the proper tender supported by your bank. Valid tender types include:

  • A = Automated clearinghouse (ACH)
  • C = Credit card
  • D = Pinless debit
  • K = Telecheck
  • P = PayPal
See the Payflow ACH Payment Service Guide for details on the ACH tender type.
