This error is typically cased by a misconfiguration of ZenCart in which the incorrect PayPal credentails are being used as described within this thead on the ZenCart forums. Be sure to check over your PayPal settings within ZenCart as well as if your site is ready to take orders, be sure to have the sandbox setting turned off as well as the live credentials placed within the configuration.
