Missing payer.status from Orders / Payments v2 API?

In NVP/SOAP and also REST v1 APIs, receiving order/payment details would return a Payer Status value (VERIFIED or UNVERIFIED).

 

This seems to be MISSING from the REST v2 API returns?

 

Is it something that needs to be enabled somewhere, or an extra obscure additive to the Create Order process? We use this value in our risk assessment score for reducing fraud. It would be a shame to lose this helpful information. Ideas?

 

All we are seeing is like:

"payer": {
    "name": {
      "given_name": <removed>,
      "surname": <removed>
    },
    "email_address": <removed>
    "payer_id": <removed>
    "address": {
      "country_code": "US"
    }
  }

Received word from the REST team that the information is indeed missing. They may or may not re-add it in the future. We just have to keep an eye on the docs and "wait and see" at this time.

I'm afraid I do not see how that is relevant to my question. You should find or make a new topic under the Community -> PayPal Help Community -> My Account section.

Still nothing?

 

Apparently the "Community" does not know why the payer status has been removed from the REST API v2. Trying to get ahold of anyone inside PayPal is next to impossible. I wonder how to actually get the request/information added to the REST API v2 then.

Hi, we also have the same problem. Do you need to create the payment with the API v1? Creating it with the v2 and getting the info with the v1 doesn't show the payer.status for me.
