State changes and follow-up transactions

Certain payment methods allow for state changes in transactions. This means that a transaction that initially failed may later change to a successful state. It is important to be prepared to handle multiple notifications related to the same transaction, as well as notifications regarding new follow-up transactions or changes in transaction status.


Be aware that for some payment methods, a transaction can change from failed to successful. Ensure that your system is capable of handling multiple notifications for the same transaction.

In addition to notifications about the outcome of a payment, IXOPAY platform also sends notifications regarding any new follow-up transactions or changes in transaction status. These notifications provide valuable updates and insights into the progress of the payment process.
