1. Checking for a transaction

from soofa import Soofa, Transaction

soofa = Soofa("you_soofa_till_number", "your_client_secret_here")
exists = soofa.find("tranaction_id_here")
if exists:
    transaction: Transaction = soofa.get_transaction()
    print("No such transaction")

The expected response for transaction check is Transaction object with various keys and methods

There is an additional method for getting the entire JSON object.

    "status": "SUCCESSFUL",
    "sender_currency": "KES",
    "receiver_currency": "KES",
    "tid": "QTMB3",
    "reference": "T5004",
    "receipt_no": "NFQ6U45W28",
    "timestamp": 1561499777.715254,
    "gross_amount": 5,
    "net_amount": 4.8605,
    "transacted_via": "mpesa",
    "is_money_in": true,
    "sender": "+254701234567",
    "receiver": "Dev Market"
