Reason #1: The same request was sent more than once within 2 minutes


This means that your sent request payload contains the same “cart_id”, “cart_currency”, “cart_amount”, “profile_id”, which was the same as another request sent within the last two minutes, which made PayTabs refuse to proceed it as precaution action to not create the same payment for the same customer twice.
