What does the Pending resultCode or authResult mean?

If you receive Pending in resultCode in the payment response (in the HPP / classic integration this field is called authResult), it means that it is not possible to obtain the final status of the payment at this time. This can happen if the systems providing final status information for the payment are unavailable, or if the shopper needs to take further action to complete the payment. 

For example, for all payments which are done via a bank transfer, the status will always be Pending until the funds are received on our end.

Your integration should be able to handle the Pending resultCode and rely on notifications to obtain the final authorised status.
