Authorize.Net eCheck Decline
ACH/eCheck transactions are not real-time in nature. During the time of payment, transactions will be submitted to the processor, and will sit in pending settlement until a response is received from the bank.
Sometimes however, Authorize.Net immediately declines the payment. This has nothing to do with whether or not the account has sufficient funds, rather this is most likely because of limitations imposed by Authorize.Net. Among them are limitations on a per-transaction basis or a monthly dollar volume.
To check the above limits, please follow the steps below:
- Login to your Authorize.Net account, then go to the Account tab.
- Go to the Merchant Profile on the left.
- Click on Risk Reserve link. This page will tell you your amount limits.
To request an increase on your limits, please contact Authorize.Net.
