Errors

All successful responses are returned with HTTP Status code 200. In case of failure, Razorpay API returns a JSON error response with the parameters that detail the reason for the failure.

Note:
If you are using an official Razorpay Language-wise SDK Integration, the error responses result in exceptions that need to be handled in your integration.

Error Response🔗

The error response contains code, description, field, source, step, reason and metadata parameters that help you diagnose and solve the error.
