Understanding The Different Payment States

A payment "State" represents a single payment and defines the amount, destination account, the application fee, etc. Here is a list of the possible payment states and transitions.


  • Initiated: The payment was initiated and is in the first stage of processing.
  • Approved: Typically used for recurring payments, and represents that the
    payer's credit card has authorized the WeDidit app to charge it in the future.
  • Authorized: The payer entered their payment info and confirmed the payment. The card was successfully charged, but the funds have not yet been credited to the payee account. Reasons for this may include ACH processing time, reviews from our Trust and Safety team, or delayed payout features.
  • Purchased: The actual payment was made or purchased (in the case of memberships, tickets or other purchasable items).
  • Cancelled: The payment has been cancelled by the payer, payee, or application.
  • Refunded: The payment was captured and then refunded by the payer, payee, or application. The payment has been debited from the payee account.
  • Failed: The payment has failed.
