We get The requested Payment Method is not available error when we try to create order using REST api.payment method works fine with all online orders and i am using given api.

  "message": "The requested Payment Method is not available.",
  "trace": "#0 /chroot/home/folder/html/vendor/magento/module-quote/Model/QuoteManagement.php(337): Magento\\Quote\\Model\\Quote\\Payment->importData(Object(Magento\\Framework\\DataObject))\n#1 [internal function]: Magento\\Quote\\Model\\QuoteManagement->placeOrder(67, Object(Magento\\Quote\\Model\\Quote\\Payment))\n#2 /chroot/home/folder/html/vendor/magento/module-webapi/Controller/Rest.php(307): call_user_func_array(Array, Array)\n#3 /chroot/home/folder/html/vendor/magento/module-webapi/Controller/Rest.php(216): Magento\\Webapi\\Controller\\Rest->processApiRequest()\n#4 /chroot/home/folder/html/var/generation/Magento/Webapi/Controller/Rest/Interceptor.php(37): Magento\\Webapi\\Controller\\Rest->dispatch(Object(Magento\\Framework\\App\\Request\\Http))\n#5 /chroot/home/folder/html/vendor/magento/framework/App/Http.php(135): Magento\\Webapi\\Controller\\Rest\\Interceptor->dispatch(Object(Magento\\Framework\\App\\Request\\Http))\n#6 /chroot/home/folder/html/vendor/magento/framework/App/Bootstrap.php(258): Magento\\Framework\\App\\Http->launch()\n#7 /chroot/home/folder/html/index.php(39): Magento\\Framework\\App\\Bootstrap->run(Object(Magento\\Framework\\App\\Http))\n#8 {main}"

Did I miss something About setting ?

and i am using following steps to create an order.

Create customer-

curl -g -X POST "$base_url/index.php/rest/V1/customer" \ -H "Authorization: Bearer $token" \ -H "Content-Type:application/json" \ -d '{"customer":{"email":"[email protected]","firstname":"sunny","lastname":"kumar","store_id":1,"website_id":1,"addresses":[{"region":{"region_code":"WA","region":"Washington","region_id":62},"region_id":62,"country_id":"US","street":["1401 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington"],"telephone":"1 202-628-9100","postcode":"DC 20004","city":"Washington","firstname":"sunny","lastname":"kumar","prefix":"Mr."},{"region":{"region_code":"WA","region":"Washington","region_id":62},"region_id":62,"country_id":"US","street":["1401 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington"],"telephone":"1 202-628-9100","postcode":"DC 20004","city":"Washington","firstname":"sunny","lastname":"kumar","prefix":"Mr.","default_shipping":true,"default_billing":true}],"disable_auto_group_change":0}}'

Create cart-

Creates an empty cart and quote for a specified customer.

Get Payment Method

I faced the same issue recently. The issue was with the country id. I was using US as country id for testing purpose, however my magento is set to work for another country. Make sure that you are using the same country code set in magento backend.
