Cancel Bill Payment

Use the Cancel Bill Payment endpoint to cancel a bill-payment transaction. Only transactions in status N (ready to process), W (waiting to be printed), or P (check printed) can be canceled: all other statuses return status code 435-02.

Keep in mind that you cannot cancel a bill payment that has already been processed. When you create an electronic bill payment with a process date of "now," the payment is processed within five minutes. If the payment is scheduled for a future date, you can still cancel it (paper or electronic), as long as it has not been processed yet.

When canceling a paper bill payment in status P, it is possible that the check will not be canceled because of processes that are downstream from making the cancelation request with this endpoint.

See Global Response Statuses for status codes that are common across endpoints.
