Tracking Payment Status
Amazon Payments will send you an e-mail from Amazon Payments with the
transaction details. If you do not receive the e-mail, or cannot find
the e-mail, you can also go directly to the Amazon Payments website at
https://payments.amazon.com/and view your transactions under Your
Account tab, after you log in.
These are the most common reasons that will see as the
- 'Success' - The transaction has successfully
completed. If the payment is made towards your account, the funds will
be credited into your Amazon Payments Account.
- 'Failure' - The transaction could not completed
successfully. The payment can fail due to multiple reasons, but more
commonly when the buyer's credit card company or bank has declined the
charge on payment instrument.
- 'Initiated'- The transaction has been received by
Amazon Payments and under processing. You can check the transaction
state after some time for the final outcome of the transaction.
In addition, Amazon Payments also sends an HTTP POST notification
(Instant Payment Notification, or IPN) when a transaction either
completes successfully or fails.
