Paid ticket status not changing

Hello, I have a registration that has a paid ticket, but the status remained as “pending payment”. Once all tickets are sold, the status should change to “approved”. What can cause this issue?

Pending Payment screen:

Transaction Screen:

Please advise.

Thank you!!

What you can do is click on the “view additional transaction session details” on that Transaction screen and there should be browser/user agent information. They may have been using an older browser which could be an issue when that AJAX happens after submitting the payment via the Stripe modal.

Here is the screen for the additional details. I see no agent info and IP address:

I manually changed the status to Approved.

No user agent info + the “Finalize Registration: Never Initiated” is an indication the transaction happened on a mobile device that did not have a good connection. What would happen is Stripe Checkout on mobile doesn’t use the modal and instead redirects to for the billing form page. After the billing form is submitted, they’re supposed to be redirected back to your site which will finalize the registration. If they do not return to the site, then the registration isn’t finalized.

Thank you, so far, we can only find one such transaction.
