- Refund directly to the payment gateway: The customer will receive the payment directly in their payment gateway.
- Refund and credit the invoice: The customer's outstanding balance is updated through this refund option. This method allows for either a full or partial refund, depending on the reason for the refund request. For example, if Customer A purchases a recurring subscription for $30 per month on July 1st and encounters service issues, resulting in a refund request, this option can be used. In this scenario, you can choose to refund the customer either in full or partially. If you refund $15, this amount will be applied as a 'Credit' toward the subscription. Consequently, on August 1st, Customer A will only need to pay $15, as the refund credit will offset half of the billed amount.
Please note that you can only use the above two options to refund only when the customer has paid you via Stripe and PayPal payment gateway.
