Status Codes and Error Responses

The Chargent API combines two levels of Status Codes and Error Responses into a single common response. The first level of response is from the Chargent interface you are using to make API requests. The second level of response is from the Gateway, and there are more details in the body of the response.

When a response is successfully or when an error occurs, Chargent will return a repsonse code, along with more detailed information.
