The payment object represents a single payment, however there can be multiple attempts at trying to complete the transaction. This means that if a payment fails (aka is dishonoured) you can re-attempt it until it succeeds. This is handy for keeping track of payment attempts in one place, however you're more than welcome to create a brand new payment, instead of re-attempting a failed one.
