Declined payments
In the course of a payment process, something might go wrong. For example, the customer may not have enough money to make the payment, the card issuer may be unavailable, or YooMoney may suspect a fraud attempt. In this case, the payment will be canceled and the status will change to canceled.
In order to help you better understand what happened and how to proceed, the payment object  sent to you by YooMoney will contain the details of the payment cancellation (cancellation_details). The information includes the initiator ( and the reason behind the cancellation (cancellation_details.reason). You can use this information to analyze and solve problems, display messages to the customer, or for any other purposes.
