Why do I get the error code "137: Field 'amount' is not valid"?

If you’re encountering the error code 137, it means that the amount provided is incorrect and must be verified. This could be due to one of the following:

  • The amount passed is greater than the limit. The current limit is set by default to 150k (for any currency). To set it at a higher or lower amount, please reach out to Adyen Support.
  • The amount passed is not a positive number.

To fix this, please correct the value of the amount provided in the API call.
