If a payment has been declined, by default the HTTP request will return a status code of 400. The error object returned in the response will contain the transaction object with a status of declined. If you're using one of the Payload libraries, this will result in an TransactionDeclined error.

The transaction's status_code will contain one of the decline codes described below.

To trigger one of the decline codes, use the test number from the below table in the test environment.
