PURPOSE

This article explains how to resolve an APC_040 error response you may encounter when processing payment requests through Ingenico.


  "reason_code": "APC_040",
    "reason_message": "Merchant data invalid or missing",


This response may be returned if


1. The payment request uses a token, and

2. The recurring_type flag is set to "mit"

 

CAUSE

Ingenico expects a value for "customer ID" in card-on-file payment requests flagged as merchant-initiated.


SOLUTION

You will need to include a value for customer_id in the customer block of the payment request:


 "customer" : {
               "customer_id" : "Customer123"
    }
