Cause:

This error message is returned from RBS WorldPay and indicates the merchant account is not enabled for Debit Processing.

Solution:

  • Confirm the isc250 is encrypted for Debit: KB437
  • Confirm on the VAR Sheet received for the processor that the account is setup for Secure Pay (Monetra) / Either the Visa-k Platform, or [TCMP] platform if using EMV. This information should be in the header of the VAR.
  • Ensure there is a Sharing Group and Reimbursement attribute on the VAR.  If those parameters are not specified on the VAR Sheet, the account has not been enabled for Debit processing with RBS.
  • Contact NCR Merchant Services / RBS WorldPay to ensure Debit processing is enabled on the Account.
