Invoice statuses


  • Initial State: Invoices start as Pending, indicating they are neither paid nor past due.
  • Automatic Collection: Invoices automatically attempting collection will shift to Paid or Past Due based on the transaction result.
  • Manual Collection: Invoices under manual collection remain Pending until payment is received or the selected term option's date is reached.


  • Definition: An invoice is processing when a payment is initiated but the result is pending. Common with ACH / Direct Debit payments.
  • Outcome: The invoice will be updated to Paid or Past Due/Failed, depending on the transaction's outcome.

Past Due


  • Definition: An invoice is Paid when the total balance is settled.
  • Automatic Zero Balance: Invoices with a zero balance due at post (due to adjustments, discounts, or credits) are immediately marked Paid.
  • Manual Collection: Invoices under manual collection reach a Paid state once the full balance is paid.


  • Definition: An invoice is marked as Failed when deemed uncollectable and written off as bad debt.
  • Credit Invoices: For invoices with the Credit Invoices feature, failing an invoice generates a corresponding write-off credit invoice, balancing the failed charge invoice to zero.

Credit invoice statuses


  • Initial State: Every credit invoice begins as Open, indicating an outstanding credit balance.


  • Definition: A credit invoice enters a Processing state when a refund transaction is initiated but the result is pending. This often occurs with ACH bank payments.
  • Balance Adjustments: The processing transaction amount is temporarily deducted from the invoice balance. If the transaction is declined, the balance increases again.
  • Impact on Other Transactions: If the credit invoice has a partial balance not covered by the processing transaction, new charge invoices on the account can use the remaining balance as payment during this period.
  • Status Outcome: After the transaction response, the invoice status updates to Closed if successful with no remaining balance, or reverts to Open if declined.


  • Definition: A credit invoice is Closed when it has no outstanding credit balance.
  • Reopening Conditions: A Closed credit invoice can be reopened if a credit payment from the invoice is voided. This usually happens if the corresponding charge invoice is failed.
  • Balance Usage: A Closed status can result from the entire credit balance being used for payments or a combination of credit payments and voided balances.


  • Definition: A credit invoice is Voided if it's identified as a mistake.
  • Implications: Voiding a credit invoice implies that its credit balance was neither used for payments nor refunded.
