Cancel Purchase

The Cancel Purchase request enables you to cancel a purchase when it is in one of the following status:

  • Created: no money has been captured from the customer Payment Instrument yet, which means that the money necessary for the purchase to go forward is still on the customer side.
  • Confirmed or Committed: at this stage, the capture of the money was already done, which means that the money necessary for the purchase to go forward is already on JumiaPay side. Please note that if the purchase is cancelled at this stage, the amount captured from the customer Payment Instrument will not be sent back to his Payment Instrument, but will be released on the customer’s JumiaPay wallet instead.

After a purchase is cancelled, the customer will be able to see it as 'Failed' on his JumiaPay account.
