Contract A has a Payable Method and contract B has ContractRef of A saved in storage. I can call other methods on Contract A but not sure how to call the payable method from Contract B. Tried with call builder as well like this :

         ExecutionInput::new(Selector::new([0xDE, 0xAD, 0xBE, 0xEF]))

But the call is returning CalleeTrapped Error.

  • are you using the correct selector?

  • yes i did check the selector as well @Coreggon . Nov 15, 2022 at 9:02
  • further note ... the issue appears only when ContractB's method is payable and i try to transfer value greater than 0 . This is getting weird not sure what i am missing. Nov 15, 2022 at 14:47
  • and what about the function you are making the call from, is it payable too?

Thank you all for help. The issue was being caused by contract trying to make a balance transfer less than existential deposit.
