Order status showing as "APPROVED" when it has already been captured, why is it not "COMPLETED"?

Hello,

 

I'm using the PayPal Sandbox Express API for orders (V2) [https://developer.paypal.com/docs/api/orders/v2/] .

 

For testing purposes, I created an order - such was done successfully. I then captured it - this was also done successfully and the funds were removed from the Sandbox account. However, when I check on the status of the order (v2/checkout/orders/id), the status is only "APPROVED" and not "COMPLETED". Unsure why this is happening. I even tried to re-capture the payment but it returned a 422 status - it could not be recaptured (so it obviously worked before). If the capturing of the order was a success, why is this not showing in the order status...

Any ideas?

Cheers.

Nevermind, I was being really stupid - Sandbox account wasn't accepting that currency.
