Processing a refund with Party Center Pay

Overview

Refunds performed through Party Center Pay must be linked to the original transaction.
This means that you must locate the original order that contains the payment that you wish to refund.
You will not be able to perform a refund otherwise.

NOTE: Refunds for the full payment amount can only be performed after the payment has been batched. This usually takes a full business day.

Please use the Void method if you wish to return the full amount before the payment is batched.
You may still perform a partial refund before the payment has been batched.

If you take a look at the original order after the refund has been processed, you will noticed that the product(s) you checked have been added back into the order with a negative quantity. This was previously a manual process, and still is for all other payment processors in PCS:
