Common causes

  • Sum of the recurring products total is less than 70 cent USD (prices with billing_cycles)

  • A combination of one-off and recurring prices are resulting in the initial charge to be greater than the minimum chargeable amount. However the recurring charge is less than this limit.


  • For a transaction to be ready it must have both an initial and recurring chargeable amount greater than 70 cent USD
