Tap Refund

Tapping on appropriate payment and tapping Refund will let you perform a refund against that payment.

You will need to enter the amount. The amount entered must be lower or equal to the original sale transaction that is being refunded. You can carry out multiple partial refunds in this way but the sum of these should not exceed the value of the original payment.

You must also present the card. The same card from the original sale must be used.
