    Transaction refused because of an invalid argument error

    Asked by media09 on November 19, 2014 at 11:02 AM

    Hi Jotform Support,

    Now our FLBI Class Registration from is receiving the attached error when they hit submit on their form. 

    I have embedded the form using the iframe code as the forum suggested, but it does not work. I tried to embed the form using a blank module as also suggested for previous issues, but it still does not work. 

    We have had so much issues with this form and it really need to work so students can enroll into class. Do you have any suggestions to resolve this issue?

    Hi Jovan,

    The error message that you received is from your PayPal API. You can check the error messages at this link: https://developer.paypal.com/docs/classic/api/errorcodes/ 

    I reviewed the error messages and I am seeing that this is due to the transaction currency not being supported.

    Please inform us if you need further assistance.

    Thank you! It was because our Paypal account does not accept American Express.
