When you generate a checkout for a product or service with OpenNode, your customer may accidentally not enter enough Bitcoin to complete the checkout, resulting in an underpayment. This often occurs when the payer forgets to include a few extra sats to cover the network fees for an on-chain Bitcoin transaction.

In the result of an underpayment, the payer will have the option to either complete the payment or ask for a refund. Learn about how underpayments are returned to payers here.

How to avoid underpayments

OpenNode offers an underpaid threshold feature that allows you to set a limit on what you are willing or not willing to accept for an underpaid checkout. Learn more about our underpaid threshold feature here.
