Accept.js error E_WC_14:Accept.js encryption failed

Starting a new thread on this, per Aaron's instructions from here...


We have customers reporting this error approximately once daily.  The other 1,500(ish) daily transactions go through no problem.  Due to the infrequency, I haven't been able to duplicate it on my end.  Here's some code from our implementation (PHP).  Let me know if there's anything else I can provide that might be helpful.  Thanks!



* On the billing info page...


<script language="javascript">

function sendPaymentDataToAnet() {
    if (validate_checkout_form(document.getElementById('checkout_form'))) {
        var secureData = {}, authData = {}, cardData = {};
        cardData.cardNumber = document.getElementById('cc_num').value;
        cardData.month = document.getElementById('cc_month').value;
        cardData.year = document.getElementById('cc_year').value;
        secureData.cardData = cardData;
        authData.clientKey = '<?php echo MERCHANT_CLIENT_KEY; ?>';
        authData.apiLoginID = '<?php echo MERCHANT_LOGIN_ID; ?>';
        secureData.authData = authData;
        Accept.dispatchData(secureData, 'responseHandler');

function responseHandler(response) {
    if (response.messages.resultCode === 'Error') {
        for (var i = 0; i < response.messages.message.length; i++) {
            alert("Error... "+response.messages.message[i].code + ':' + response.messages.message[i].text);
            console.log(response.messages.message[i].code + ':' + response.messages.message[i].text);
    } else {

function useOpaqueData(responseData) {
    // This is where you would set the data descriptor & data value to be posted back to your server

Hi there,


Can you confirm that the responseHandler is not actually getting called twice?  Easiest way to do this is just drop an alert() or console.write or something in there and see if there is one successful response followed immediately by one failed (E_WC_14) error.


If that is the case there a couple of things you can do, renaming the responseHandler does seem to work for many people.


Let us know,



Thank you for your prompt response! I truly appreciate it.


Yes, I've confirmed that the response handler is not getting called twice; I'd put alert() calls in my response handler to ensure that the execution actually stops when it's called, and the error is getting returned on the first call.


From the start, I've been using a nonstandard response handler function name, so unless the Accept.js code includes a response handler called "ALSFPaymentsAuthResponseHandler," I don't think that's the problem!


Please let me know if you'd like me to send you my code or a URL where you can see this in action!
