Error handling

If an error is encountered during the payment process, two things will occur:

  • The PaymentContainer will emit an event: error 
  • An error screen will be displayed to the user 

For example, if we receive a different payment status to NEW PAYMENT or APPROVED BY RISK from the Volt API, the PaymentContainer emits event: error with the following payload structure:

  status: "COMPLETED", 
  paymentId: "{uuid}",
  message: "Incorrect payment status"

Only the code and message elements will be supplied for every error, other fields are conditional and will appear based on the type of error.
