Transactions of this market type cannot be processed on this system.

Authorize.net requires users to select a market type of either Card Present (CP) or Card Not Present (CNP) for your merchant account during setup.  Once selected the market type cannot be changed.

  • Card Present – usually means the owner and the card are physically present at the time of purchase.  Traditionally, merchants who process this type of payment will have a “brick and mortar” store and the card is swiped using a credit card machine.
  • Card Not Present – is just that, the card is typically not present at the time of payment and would be keyed in manually.  Merchants who receive a payment using this method typically receive orders from “Email/Online/Web Orders or Mail Order/Telephone Order (MOTO)”.

Users may receive a “Could not authorize card: The transaction was unsuccessful, Error 87: Transactions of this market type cannot be processed on this system.”  when attempting to authorize a credit card as a Card Not Present (CNP) transaction with a Card Present (CP) market type or vice versa.
