invalid request using v3/vault/payment API

Posted on

Hi all,

We started experiencing errors when using v3/vault/payment API when trying to setup a token for recurring purchases. We're getting this weird error: 

Does anyone getting something similar and knows how to solve it? We're getting like 100% failure with all of our transactions.

Good day @Adeon9311,


Thank you for posting to the PayPal community.


Test and go live with this integration.


  • Complete production onboarding to be eligible to process cards with your live PayPal account.
  • Remember to swap the credentials and API URL from sandbox to production when going live with your integration.

You can get a payment token, list all payment tokens, delete a payment token, and more with the Payment Method Tokens API. 


Important: Vaulting payment methods is a limited-release solution available to select merchants and partners as a pilot. Contact your sales or account manager to ask about the pilot. You may need to configure your developer account to use vaulting in both the sandbox and production environments separately. You must be approved to enable a reference transaction for recurring payments from a PayPal Wallet.


If your still facing any issues, please create a MTS ticket via - with the detail information and error details.
