Receiving E00027 error for invalid amount

 

Hello!

 

I am attempting to test my ecommerce solution against the sandbox, but I'm unclear on the rules for which transaction amounts will be approved or declined.  I am receiving and approval or a decline depending on the amount.

 

The error I get back is:

 

E00027: The transaction was unsuccessful.
5: A valid amount is required.

 

I am receiving this error message for the amounts:

 

79.99
482.83

 

And I am receiving an approval on the amount:

 

146.56

 

The testing guide at https://developer.authorize.net/hello_world/testing_guide/ is listing the following amounts as producing a declined response:

 

70.02

70.03

 

And I'm not using those amounts.

 

The guide also states that "The response from the sandbox varies depending on the card type, ZIP code, and amount."  But I'm using a postal code, the Visa number 4111111111111111, and the amounts I listed above.

 

Can anyone direct me to what I'm missing?  Is there documentation that indicates which amounts to use for different responses?
