This endpoint requests a payment auth, which determines the order approval status. If approved, the auth will have an expiration date and time, which is returned in the events list for the "AUTH_APPROVED" payment event.
This operation is idempotent based on the
requestId(if provided), which allows for the safe retry of multiple requests, guaranteeing the payment operation is only performed once.
The consumer's payment plan will begin at the time of auth approval.
Approved Response (201)
If payment is approved by Afterpay, returns a Payment object in response, with a
status of "APPROVED" and a
paymentState of "AUTH_APPROVED".
Declined Response (402)
If payment is declined by Afterpay, for example, if invalid card details were entered, returns a Payment object in response, with a
status of "DECLINED" and a
paymentState of "AUTH_DECLINED".
Please advise the consumer to contact the Afterpay Customer Service team for more information.
