The Refund Invoice request enables you to refund either the full amount or a partial amount of a given invoice. You can provide a cancellation reason and determine whether to cancel a subscription at the same time.

Notes

  • The refund is automatically performed in the currency that was used for the original transaction.
  • For card and ACH transactions, if you issue a refund the same day as the initial transaction, the transaction is a void, rather than a refund.
