Payment states and modifications

A payment can have several states, and change states when a modification is made.

CREATEDThe payment has been initiated.
AUTHORIZEDThe user has accepted the payment.
ABORTEDThe payment has been actively stopped by the user.
EXPIREDThe payment has expired. See Timeouts.
