You can't find the payment

If the payment you’re looking for doesn’t show in the search results, the authorization is still pending. We call a payment pending authorization an open offer. Payment authorizations stay open in 3 cases:

  • The customer was redirected to an external page to complete the authorization. This is common for local payment methods (such as iDEAL and Dotpay) and for 3D Secure payments.
  • The transaction was processed, but the funds haven’t cleared yet. This is common for bank transfers or offline payment methods (such as Boleto Bancário).
  • The funds transferred by the shopper can’t be matched with the payment request. For example, if a shopper uses a wrong reference to transfer money, the funds are stuck as an open offer. The funds are usually sent back automatically, and this process can take up to 8 business days.
