MultiSafepay statuses

There are two statuses in your MultiSafepay account that update as payments are processed.

Order status
The progression of the customer’s order with you, independent of the payment, e.g. whether you have shipped the items.
API attribute: status

Transaction status
The progression towards settling the funds in your MultiSafepay balance.
API attribute: financial_status

Statuses are also valuable for understanding reports.

Viewing statuses

To view statuses in your MultiSafepay account, go to Transaction overview > Transaction details page, under Status history.
