Check transaction status
If you need to verify the status of a transaction in progress you can easily do so using the check status command.
With check status you can verify whether a transaction was completed successfully, check the authorized amount on a transaction, and verify the response generated when the transaction was processed.
What is check status?
Check status is an API command that enables you to verify the status of a transaction. Your check status request will generate a response that gives you the full response code for your original transaction request.
Using check status you can confirm a range of transaction data. For example, you can verify whether a transaction was successfully authorized, and retrieve any relevant error codes. You can also verify how much was refunded on a transaction, or how much of an authorized amount you have successfully captured.
When should I use check status?
Check status can help you to verify the status of a transaction under several scenarios. For example, where your server was disconnected from the Amazon Payment Services server and where you did not receive a response that indicated the status of a transaction.
In fact, you can use check status to retrieve the status of a transaction under any circumstances where you are unsure what the status of a transaction is -- or whether a request you have sent has been executed successfully.
