Process pending payments

Pending payments occur typically when you use the SimpleOffline payment plug-in and the payment method's configuration in SimpleOfflinePlugin.xml has the keepPendingStatus attribute set to true. Background tasks are provided in WebSphere Commerce to periodically clean unfinished orders, including those associated with payment rules. These cleanup tasks must be scheduled to handle orders remaining in a stale or incomplete state. For example, orders can become stale if merchandise is no longer available because the product is never restocked. Or, an order can be blocked indefinitely if a failed payment operation prevents the order from completing normally. The scheduled tasks clean these orders by putting them in a canceled or finalized state.
