402 Payment Required HTTP Status Code


HTTP status code 402 is reserved for future use. Officially, it's defined as "Payment Required." However, it's not currently used in practice, and there's no standard convention for its use. When the status code was originally conceived, the idea was that it might be used as part of some digital cash or micropayment scheme, but such applications have not been widely adopted.
