To issue a refund, the following three conditions must be met:
- You must have sufficient balance in your Payplug account.
- The transaction must have occurred within the last 180 days (6 months).
- The refund amount must not be less than 10 cents.
If these conditions are not met, you won't be able to process the refund via Payplug, making the refund impossible. However, you can still send a payment request to yourself to recredit your account (in cases where only the balance is an issue). In this situation, you will need to pay the associated Payplug fees. Another option is to refund your customer via check or bank transfer.
How to check the status of my refund?
To confirm that a refund has been successfully processed, navigate to the "Payments" menu in your Payplug portal. For a full refund, the transaction status will be "Totally refunded".
