Cancel reserve - Payment management - Mercado Pago Developers

Cancel reserve

Cancellation of a reserve occurs when, for some reason, the payment for a purchase is not approved and the reservation amount needs to return to the customer's card limit or when a buyer withdraws from the purchase. For more information about refunds and cancellations of payments, see the section Refunds and Cancellations.

To cancel a reserve, use one of our available codes below.



$payment = MercadoPago\Payment::find_by_id($payment_id);
$payment->status = "cancelled";


Long paymentId = 123456789L;

PaymentClient client = new PaymentClient();

var Mercadopago = require('mercadopago');

let paymentToBeCanceled = 123;

Mercadopago.payment.cancel(paymentToBeCanceled, Mercadopago, (error, response) => {
if (error){

require 'mercadopago'
sdk =

request = {
status: 'canceled'

payment_response = sdk.payment.update(payment_id, request)
payment = payment_response[:response]

using MercadoPago.Client.Payment;
using MercadoPago.Config;
using MercadoPago.Resource.Payment;

MercadoPagoConfig.AccessToken = "ENV_ACCESS_TOKEN";

var client = new PaymentClient();
Payment payment = await client.CancelAsync(paymentId);

import market
sdk = Mercadopago.SDK("ENV_ACCESS_TOKEN")

payment_data = {
"status": "cancelled"

payment_response = sdk.payment().update(payment_id, payment_data)
payment = payment_response["response"]

curl -X PUT \
'' \
-H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
-H 'Authorization: Bearer ENV_ACCESS_TOKEN' \
-d '{"status": "cancelled"}'


The response will show the following result:


"status": "cancelled",
"status_detail": "by_collector",
"captured": false,
