order

When it comes to refunding, the Shopify platform allows you to not only refund an entire order, but also refund an order partially for specific items in that order. You could continue to issue partial refunds of an order until the original value of the order, the amount available to refund, is reached.

If you use Shopify POS to refund orders to store credit, then the amount can be refunded to the original method of purchase later on. If you wish to find out more about Shopify POS, take a look at Selling in person.

  • Caution:

Be careful when choosing the amount to be refunded, especially because in cases when a discount code was applied, you could possibly refund the larger amount than that the customer paid you. Once the refund decision was made, it cannot be reversed.
