Disbursement status changes based on various scenarios, such as whether the disbursement succeeds or fails. Learn about the different statuses and what to do at each stage of a disbursement's life cycle here.
A Disbursement has been created successfully
We will send instructions to make the fund transfers to the specified destination
We have sent instructions to make the disbursement, awaiting confirmation that the bank transfers are complete
Disbursement failure reasons
Disbursements can fail for various reasons.
Requested fund transfers can sometimes be declined by the payment network, or a congested payment network may not respond successfully
Other reasons could be errors made during the disbursement request. See Handling Errors for a list of possible errors
Handling failed disbursements
If you did not receive a response, or the request timed-out, you may attempt to safely retry the disbursement with the same referenceId
If a disbursement has failed, take note of the error code and message. Try to rectify any issues with the API request and try again with a new referenceId
