List all payments for an invoice

Returns a list of payments associate with a given invoice. The payments are returned sorted by creation date, with the most recently created payments appearing first.

The response contains an object with an invoice_payments property that contains an array of up to per_page payments. Each entry in the array is a separate payment object. If no more payments are available, the resulting array will be empty. Several additional pagination properties are included in the response to simplify paginating your payments.

GET /v2/invoices/{INVOICE_ID}/payments
Parameter Type Description
updated_since datetime Only return invoice payments that have been updated since the given date and time.
page integer The page number to use in pagination. For instance, if you make a list request and receive 2000 records, your subsequent call can include page=2 to retrieve the next page of the list. (Default: 1)
per_page integer The number of records to return per page. Can range between 1 and 2000. (Default: 2000)
