Returns the receipt of a transaction by transaction hash.

NOTE: The receipt is not available for pending transactions.


  1. DATA, 32 Bytes - hash of a transaction


Object - A transaction receipt object, or null when no receipt was found:

  • transactionHash : DATA, 32 Bytes - hash of the transaction.

  • transactionIndex: QUANTITY - integer of the transactions index position in the block.

  • blockHash: DATA, 32 Bytes - hash of the block where this transaction was in.

  • blockNumber: QUANTITY - block number where this transaction was in.

  • from: DATA, 20 Bytes - address of the sender.

  • to: DATA, 20 Bytes - address of the receiver. null when its a contract creation transaction.

  • cumulativeGasUsed : QUANTITY - The total amount of gas used when this transaction was executed in the block.

  • effectiveGasPrice : QUANTITY - The sum of the base fee and tip paid per unit of gas.

  • gasUsed : QUANTITY - The amount of gas used by this specific transaction alone.

  • contractAddress : DATA, 20 Bytes - The contract address created, if the transaction was a contract creation, otherwise null.

  • logs: Array - Array of log objects, which this transaction generated.

  • logsBloom: DATA, 256 Bytes - Bloom filter for light clients to quickly retrieve related logs.

  • type: QUANTITY - integer of the transaction type, 0x0 for legacy transactions, 0x1 for access list types, 0x2 for dynamic fees. It also returns either :

  • root : DATA 32 bytes of post-transaction stateroot (pre Byzantium)

  • status: QUANTITY either 1 (success) or 0 (failure)


NOTE: In this example we are using public Ethereum endpoint. Ideally, for your own projects, you should use your own endpoint, which you can generate for free by connecting to your wallet here.


NOTE: ethers used below is a well-known web3 library, check it out here.
