Payments - Error codes

Learn about error codes and how to resolve them

Jupiter uses HTTP response status codes to indicate the success or failure of your API requests. If your request fails, Jupiter returns an error using the appropriate status code.

In general, there are three status code ranges you can expect:

  • 2xx success status codes confirm that your request worked as expected.
  • 4xx error status codes indicates an error because of the information provided (e.g., a required parameter was omitted).
  • 5xx error status codes are rare and indicate an error with Jupiter’s servers.

Some 4xx errors that could be handled programmatically (e.g., a card is declined) include an error code a short string with a brief explanation. Below you will find a list of possible error codes that can be returned, along with additional information about how to resolve them.
