Why did I get API error code 10609?

PayPal returned API error code 10609 - Invalid transactionID (Transaction id is invalid) when calling the “DoAuthorization.”

The transaction ID is invalid. This message can be displayed with the DoAuthorization, DoCapture, DoReauthorization, and DoVoid API calls.

Review the transaction ID and retry the request. Also, consult Express Checkout API Operations for more information on these API calls.

See the Developer Portal for a complete list of NVP/SOAP API error codes.
