Receiving payments after they have expired
Late payments occur when cryptocurrency is received after the payment has expired or is already in a complete or underpaid state. This can happen when the blockchain does not complete the payment in time, or the user sends the funds late, or sends additional funds.
Why can payments expire?
End users may never send their funds for the payment and we don't want to leave payment in a pending state indefinitely. For greater flexibility of when end users send their funds and how much please use crypto top-ups.
How long before a payment expires?
expiryMinutes is specified when creating a payment and the payment is still in a
processing after that time the payment will be expired. If not specified in the payment request then your configured default expiry in your merchant settings will be used.
For payments that require an FX conversion between the currency that is being paid and the currency of your MID wallet, and no
expiryMinutes are specified, and no default expiry setting configured, then our default expiry time of 180 minutes will be used.
