Woocommerce create order after successful payment only

I am using Woocommerce for my e-commerce website. I know Woocommerce create the order before confirming the payment. Is it possible to create the order only if payment is successful?


Actually, Woocommerce creates the order before the payment process. I think a possible solution is to check the order status on thank you page. Woocommerce falls on thank you page after checkout and provides the hook 'woocommerce_thankyou'. If payment was not completed the status can be 'failed' or 'pending' This is some example code:

add_action( 'woocommerce_thankyou', 'remove_order_on_failed_payment', 10, 1 );
function remove_order_on_failed_payment( $order_id ) {
    // Get an instance of the order object
    $order = wc_get_order( $order_id );

    if( in_array( $order->get_status(), ['failed', 'pending'] ) ) {
