What do the different payable order statuses mean?

In this article we share what the various labels mean that you might see in the "Payable Order Status" column in your Google Sheet.

For Payable Orders with One Time Payment:
created : Order data was sent to Payable and our servers calculated a Total and and Generated a Payable Order ID.
email-sent : The add-on was able to send an email with the order details and payment link to the customer.
free : The add-on did not find any money amounts chosen in the submission or a customer used a promo code which dropped the price to zero.
checkout-started : The checkout page for that order has been viewed. This could be by the seller or the customer, essentially just means the unique checkout page for that order has loaded at least once.
declined : The payment provider (eg. PayPal, Stripe, Square) returned decline status code. The order is still in a payable status and the customer can re-try a different payment method.
error : The payment provider (eg. PayPal, Stripe, Square) returned an error of some type when the customer tried to pay. The order is still in a payable status and the customer can re-try.
pending : The customer has paid. However your funds are not available to you yet. One of the more common reasons is your payment provider (eg. PayPal) has placed a risk temporary hold on the funds for that transaction. Another reason may be if your customer paid with a non-real time payment method like bank or crypto that may go into a pending state until it is completed.
paid : The customer has paid. Funds are available to you in your payment provider account. (eg. PayPal, Stripe, Square)
partially-refunded : You have issued a refund but it was not for the full amount of the transaction. Refunds can only be issued by logging into your connected payment provider. (eg. PayPal, Stripe, Square).
refunded : You have issued a full refund. Refunds can only be issued by logging into your connected payment provider. (eg. PayPal, Stripe, Square).

For Payable Orders with Subscriptions:
subscribed : The customer has subscribed to your recurring plan and is up to date on payments.
cancelled : The subscription was cancelled or is behind on payments. Subscriptions can be cancelled by logging into your connected payment provider. (eg. PayPal, Stripe, Square).
paused : The subscription has been paused temporarily. Subscriptions can be paused by logging into your connected payment provider. (eg. PayPal, Stripe, Square).
