There are three ways of transaction flow –

  1. Amount is debited from consumer’s account and success message is shown in eBasta portal. Connection does not break.
  2. Connection breaks before amount is debited from user’s account. There should not be any issue as consumer’s bank/card account is not debited.
  3. Connection breaks after amount is debited from user’s account but payment status is not shown in eBasta portal. Successful payments will be settled during reconciliation process between CDAC and Billdesk. Consumer can pay again to make sure that he/she gets transaction receipt.
