This can also be used to get general information about a transaction or to track the status of a transaction, since result will be null until the transaction is mined, however, using the Mined Transaction Webhook is a better option to track the status of a transaction. Unlike
eth_getTransactionByHash, which returns
null for unknown transactions, and a non-null response with 3 null fields for a pending transaction,
eth_getTransactionReceipt returns null for both pending and unknown transactions.
This call can also be used to get the contract address for a contract creation tx. However, if you use tools like Hardhat to deploy the contracts, you can get the address of the newly created contract by using the Hardhat toolbox.
Note: the receipt is not available for pending transactions.
