What's the difference between a Payment and a Transaction?

Follow

Great question!

Each payment is actually a collection of blockchain transactions. 

Here is how it works:

[Transaction 1]: You send Ether to our smart contract
[Transaction 2]: You decide to cancel the payment, so you make the cancel transaction to the contract.
[Transaction 3]: The contract sends Ether back to your wallet.

Three separate blockchain transactions occurred, over the course of one payment.

Note: Each of these individual transactions can be viewed on sites like Etherscan too.
