    Are you referring to the pending submissions under incomplete payments done by a user? Upon checking the API documentation, unfortunately, it seems that it is not stated there. But I can forward this to our developers and technical team so that they can properly advise us. We will receive a notification when they have an update for us.

    Thank you.

    I haven't tested pending submissions before, but this solution may work.

    1) Use a webhook to notify your server that a submission has been sent. I'm not 100% sure when the hook is sent, in regards to pending submissions though. I *think* it's sent even if the submission is still pending.


    2) Use this API call, if necessary, to check the submission


    Potentially you could use the timing of when the web hook fires, and the existing API calls to determine which submissions are pending.

    Let us know if you have further questions.
