I have a function which sells tokens from an address on Pancake swap. I tested this using low slippage coins, but when running automatically in production i get a 'TRANSFER_FROM_FAILED' error. I am assuming this is to do with increased slippages though I have set this to be 0 which I thought essentially meant i was using auto splippage?

async function processSellToken(targetAccount, amount, token)
{
    var amountToSell = web3.utils.toHex(amount);
    var privateKey = Buffer.from(targetAccount.privateKey, 'hex')  ;
    var abiArray = JSON.parse(token.abiArray);
    var tokenAddress = token.address; // Token contract address
    var WBNBAddress = '0xbb4cdb9cbd36b01bd1cbaebf2de08d9173bc095c'; // WBNB token address
    var pancakeSwapRouterAddress = '0x10ed43c718714eb63d5aa57b78b54704e256024e';
    var tokenContract = new web3.eth.Contract(abiArray, tokenAddress, {from: targetAccount.address});
    var approveTokenSpendData = tokenContract.methods.approve(pancakeSwapRouterAddress, web3.utils.toWei('1', 'ether'));
    var count = await web3.eth.getTransactionCount(targetAccount.address);


    var rawTransactionApprove = {
        "from": targetAccount.address,
        "gasPrice": web3.utils.toHex(5000000000),
        "gasLimit": web3.utils.toHex(210000),
        "to": tokenAddress,
        "value": "0x0",
        "data": approveTokenSpendData.encodeABI(),
        "nonce": web3.utils.toHex(count)
    };

    var transactionApprove = new Tx(rawTransactionApprove, {'common':BSC_FORK});
    transactionApprove.sign(privateKey)
    var resultApprove = await web3.eth.sendSignedTransaction('0x' + transactionApprove.serialize().toString('hex'));
    console.log("Approved" + resultApprove);

    var amountOutMin = web3.utils.toHex(0);

    };

    console.log(rawTransaction);

    var transaction = new Tx(rawTransaction, { 'common': BSC_FORK });
    transaction.sign(privateKey);

    var result = await web3.eth.sendSignedTransaction('0x' + transaction.serialize().toString('hex'));
    console.log(result)
    return result;
}

The transaction is approved no problem, but it is always reverted, I believe at the sendSignedTransaction method. Any help would be really appreciated!

My guess is you're not approving enough funds.

var approveTokenSpendData = tokenContract.methods.approve(pancakeSwapRouterAddress, web3.utils.toWei('1', 'ether'));

Increase this to a higher number.

You can use this for infinite approval
