Making a Partial Refund

When a transaction has been settled you can make a partial refund by making a new transaction on the same credit card with a Negative Amount.

  • Do a POST /payment with the amount being set to a negative number, which would be the refund amount.

👍

Tying the transaction to a previous transaction

If you want the refund to associate with a previous transaction, you can pass in the paymentToken returned in the original transaction. Using this method will not require the original credit card number to be entered again.
