Transfer represents any flow of funds either to or from a
For example, a
Transfer is a credit to a bank account refund to a card.
Transfer can have one of three types:
Reversal. Each type indicates a different funds flow. For example:
- A Debit is created after capturing an Authorization or creating an eCheck (also called ACH payment) where funds are pulled from the issuer into the settlement account
- A Reversal represents a refund or chargeback where funds are returned to a customer
- A Credit is produced when funds are transferred to a merchant's bank account when funding (i.e. paying out) a batch settlement
Transfers can have four possible states values: PENDING, SUCCEEDED, FAILED, or CANCELED.
Payment Instrumentsuccessfully created (i.e. funds are being held), but awaiting system to batch submit the capture request to complete the transaction
- SUCCEEDED: Funds captured and available for settlement (i.e. disbursement via ACH Credit)
- FAILED: Authorization attempt failed
- CANCELED: Created, and then reversed before transfer has transitioned to succeeded
Transfers will be in a PENDING state and will eventually (typically
within an hour) update to SUCCEEDED.
ready_to_settle_at field can have 2 possible values:
null: Funds have been captured, but are not yet ready to be paid out
TIMESTAMP: A UTC timestamp that specifies when the funds will be available to be payout out. Once in the past, the Transfer will be eligible for inclusion in a batch Settlement.
When an Authorization is captured a corresponding Transfer will also be created.
