8. Status handling
As a rule, iDEAL transactions immediately get a status 9 - Payment requested (payment success) or 2 - Authorisation denied (payment refusal).
However, in at least the following situations our platform can't capture the payment status directly:
- A time-out or outage at the iDEAL acquirer occurs
- The customer closes the payment window before being redirected to our platform
In both cases the transaction will get the temporary status "92 - Payment uncertain". In the meantime our system launches a status recovery process. With this recovery process, the final status (9 or 2) will be retrieved within minutes, depending on the bank and the severity of the outage.
To capture the final transaction status, we recommend to use the HTTP request for status changes.
