Status Reasons

Status reasons represent feedback on the status of a given Payment Intent. If the status is NOT_CAPTURABLE or EXPIRED, there will be statusReasons containing details on how to resolve the status before creating a Payment. Each status reason object will have a code and a message.

Examples

{
  "status": "NOT_CAPTURABLE",
  "statusReasons": [
      {
          "code": "CARD_BRAND_BLOCK",
          "message": "The card brand prohibits this payment type. Please try another card."
      }
  ]
}
{
  "status": "EXPIRED",
  "statusReasons": [
      {
          "code": "DELIVERY_EXPIRATION_BLOCK",
          "message": "The payment can no longer be fulfilled by the quoted delivery date. Please try to resubmit."
      }
  ]
}
{
  "status": "CAPTURABLE",
  "statusReasons": []
}
{
  "status": "CAPTURED",
  "statusReasons": []
}

CAPTURABLE

The Payment Intent is supported by Plastiq. statusReasons will present an empty array since no action is required for processing as a Payment.

CAPTURED

The Payment Intent was successfully processed as a Payment. The statusReasons array will be empty. To create another Payment, a new Payment Intent will need to be created first. Reusing a CAPTURED Payment Intent ID will result in a validation error.

EXPIRED

If a Payment Intent has an EXPIRED status, the current time exceeds the expiresAt timestamp. Create a new Payment Intent with a later delivery date because Plastiq can no longer fulfill the delivery by the specified date.

Code

Message

DELIVERY_EXPIRATION_BLOCK

The payment can no longer be fulfilled by the quoted delivery date. Please try to resubmit.

NOT_CAPTURABLE

To resolve a Payment Intent with a NOT_CAPTURABLE status, the Payment Intent or associated utilized resource will need to be updated. Below is a list of the possible status reason codes and messages for a Payment Intent with this status.

Warnings

Warnings represent feedback on the given Payment Intent. If warnings are present, they will not prevent the payment from being completed, however they may affect the created payment. Each warnings will have a code and a message associated with it.

Examples

{
  "warnings": [
      {
          "code": "ACCOUNT_NAME_MISSING",
          "message": "An account name was not provided in payment details. This payment will default the account name to John Doe."
      }
  ]
}

ACCOUNT_NAME_MISSING

The created Payment Intent was missing the accountName field. For Payments sending a WIRE, this is a required field by institutions so we will derive the account name from one of these values, in order:

  • the first + last name on the Payer contact details
  • the business name associated with the Payer
