    This is an error in Paypal Pro form. If the error is pointing out an invalid configuration, it means your billing agreement has been disabled or is inactive to your Paypal Account.

    You can check the error code information on this page: https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?cmd=_render-content&content_ID=developer/e_howto_api_nvp_errorcodes

    Occurs when you have not agreed to the billing agreement.
