Payment statuses

The GraphQL schema defines statuses like this:

enum PaymentStatus {

The current status of your payment.

  • INITIALISING - a draft payment. It may or may not have all required information to be executed.

    • Typically never happens via API. Can be created via the Flash Payments app under certain circumstances.

  • OPEN - the payment is in progress.

  • CLOSED - means successfully delivered.

  • FAILED - an error has occurred with this payment.

  • CANCELLED - the payment has not completed and has been cancelled.

    • Usually done by Flash Payments operations team.

Important to understand that the Payment.history is a transfer logs and is not related to payment status at all. Sometimes the history may contain half a dozen entries, however your payment will go through only two steps: OPEN and CLOSED.
