|F300 – InsufficientFunds|
|F300 – ActiveContractNotFound|
|F300 – AccountHasProblems|
|F300 – OperationNotPermitted|

If you have an inquiry related to the type of errors listed above, please contact your local Operations team per the table below and we will respond to your inquiry within 1 business day.
Other Non-Emergency Issues
Please send email notices for any other API related technical questions and issues to the Partner Integration Team at email@example.com.
