      Capture API

      Use Case

      The Capture API is used when merchant actually captures the fund.

      Order id sent in pre-auth and order_id sent in capture request should be same as both these requests belong to same merchant order.

      We have PENDING status for capture transaction other than SUCCESS and FAILED which is returned when the system is not sure whether money has been debited from customer wallet or not.

      It happens when there are some system errors between two Paytm systems. We have internal reconciliation between systems after which this PENDING transaction moves to either SUCCESS or FAILED state.

      To verify the final Status of transaction Merchant can call Transaction Status API and Merchant has to send txn type in the request of Transaction Status API to know the current status of txn.

      Txn Type valid values will be PREAUTH,RELEASE,CAPTURE for preauth, release and capture txn respectively.

      In case final status is FAILED, Merchant can call capture again with same order id and Paytm will honor that capture if pre-auth is still valid.

      99% of PENDING STATUS will be converted into final status with in 10 min.
