Order Life Cycle#

Described below are the various states for an order.




When you create an order it is in the created state. It stays in this state till a payment is attempted on it.


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.


After the successful capture of the payment, the order moves to the paid state. No further payment requests are permitted once the order moves to the paid state. The order stays in this state even if the payment associated with the order is refunded.

Create an Order#

Use the below endpoint to create an Order.

Copycurl -X POST https://api.razorpay.com/v1/orders -H 'content-type:application/json' -d '{ "amount": 50000, "currency": "INR", "receipt": "rcptid_11" }'
Copytry { JSONObject orderRequest = new JSONObject(); orderRequest.put("amount", 50000); // amount in the smallest currency unit orderRequest.put("currency", "INR"); orderRequest.put("receipt", "order_rcptid_11"); Order order = razorpay.Orders.create(orderRequest); } catch (RazorpayException e) { // Handle Exception System.out.println(e.getMessage()); }
Copyorder_amount = 50000 order_currency = 'INR' order_receipt = 'order_rcptid_11' notes = {'Shipping address': 'Bommanahalli, Bangalore'} # OPTIONAL client.order.create(amount=order_amount, currency=order_currency, receipt=order_receipt, notes=notes)
Copy$order = $client->order->create([ 'receipt' => 'order_rcptid_11', 'amount' => 50000, // amount in the smallest currency unit 'currency' => 'INR',// <a href="/docs/payment-gateway/payments/international-payments/#supported-currencies" target="_blank">See the list of supported currencies</a>.) ]);
CopyDictionary<string, object> options = new Dictionary<string,object>(); options.Add("amount", 50000); // amount in the smallest currency unit options.add("receipt", "order_rcptid_11"); options.add("currency", "INR"); Order order = client.Order.Create(options);
Copyoptions = amount: 50000, currency: 'INR', receipt: '<order_rcptid_11>', order = Razorpay::Order.create
Copyvar options = { amount: 50000, // amount in the smallest currency unit currency: "INR", receipt: "order_rcptid_11" }; instance.orders.create(options, function(err, order) { console.log(order); });
Copy{ "id": "order_DBJOWzybf0sJbb", "entity": "order", "amount": 50000, "amount_paid": 0, "amount_due": 50000, "currency": "INR", "receipt": "rcptid_11", "status": "created", "attempts": 0, "notes": [], "created_at": 1566986570 }

Successful creation of the Order returns an id (referred to as order_id) that should be stored against the Order defined in your system.
