Important Notes and Caveats

Possible Action: Datafeed Handling

An BitPay transaction takes time to be confirmed in the blockchain, so at the time we process the initial transaction, we don't know if it was approved or not. To handle this, transactions are initially marked as pending, and when we get a confirmation from BitPay on the result of the transaction, we update it accordingly. Each time the status changes, a datafeed will be sent to your endpoint if configured with the transaction details and the status node will be present.

The status node can contain one of three different values: pending, approved or rejected. Depending on the types of actions you're needing to perform at your datafeed endpoint, you need to make sure the appropriate status value is present.
