Why did I get API error code 36?

PayPal returned error code 36 - Transaction failed: Fail to obtain approval for the online transaction.

The card expiration date value was used improperly.

Check that you're using the expected Payflow Pro EXPDATE value. The account expiration date format should be in this format: MMYY.
