Orders

Create, view and update an Order using Razorpay APIs.


You can create Orders and link them to payments.

  • Order creation is important as it helps you associate every payment with an order, thus preventing multiple payments.
  • It is compulsory to create orders to capture payments automatically.
  • The order ID secures the payment request and one cannot tamper with the order amount.

Orders and payments go hand-in-hand. Once a payment is captured, the order is marked paid. Know more about:

Orders APIπŸ”—

Orders APIs are used to create, update and retrieve details of Orders. Also, you can retrieve details of payments made towards these Orders.

You can try out our APIs on the Razorpay Postman Public Workspace.

Run in Postman

Upgrade Your Orders API
The payment_capture parameter, earlier passed for automatic capture of payments, is being deprecated and hence no longer required. For automatically capturing the payments, visit our payment capture settings page.

Order EntityπŸ”—

The Order entity has the following fields:

amount
integer The amount for which the order was created, in currency subunits. For example, for an amount of β‚Ή295, enter 29500.

  • true: The customer can make partial payments.
  • false (default): The customer cannot make partial payments.

status
string The status of the order. Possible values:
  • created: When you create an order it is in the created state. It stays in this state till a payment is attempted on it.
  • attempted: An order moves from created to attempted state when a payment is first attempted on it. It remains in the attempted state till one payment associated with that order is captured.

You can view orders, subscribe to Webhook Events related to orders and view reports related to orders from the Razorpay Dashboard.

Error Response ParametersπŸ”—

Given below is a list of possible errors you may face during the creation of Orders.

Error

Cause

Solution

The API <key/secret> provided is invalid.

The API credentials passed in the API call differ from the ones generated on the Dashboard.

  • Different keys for test mode and live modes.
  • Expired API key.

The API keys must be active and entered correctly with no whitespace before or after the keys.

The amount must be atleast INR 1.00.

The amount specified is less than the minimum amount. Currency subunits, such as paise (in the case of INR), should always be greater than 100.

Enter an amount equal to or greater than the minimum amount, that is 100.

The field name is required

A mandatory field is missing.

Ensure all mandatory fields and values are present.

Fetch OrdersπŸ”—

The following endpoint retrieves the details of all the orders that you created:
