Illicit resource

A merchant cannot resolve the invoice that is assigned with the status_context of illicit_resource themselves.

Instead, Cryptopay Transaction Monitoring team will review this transaction and contact the merchant to make a decision on whether Cryptopay will be able to process this payment and add the funds to the merchant account balance or we will have to send the funds back to a sender.

We highly recommend making your Fraud Prevention and Transaction Monitoring teams aware of all such payments so that they contact us at

Refer to the Risks section to get more details on what High-Risk transactions are and why we take it very seriously.
