Why did I get API error code 10601?

Issue
PayPal returned API error code 10601 - Authorization expired.

Cause
You tried to perform a DoAuthorization, DoCapture, DoReauthorization or a DoVoid on an expired Authorization.

Solution
Contact the customer and ask for their payment details again. Either process the transaction manually, or cancel the expired order and get them to submit a new one.
