Introduction to Refund
Refund means returning the funds back to the customer. It is caused by double order, products/services not available, cancelled flight, etc.
To process refund, or to return the funds back to customer, we need to make sure that the money has been successfully transferred from customer to merchant; or operationally, the payment status has been changed to “Settlement”. In Midtrans, refund request is mostly applicable in Card Payment transactions, and it works by restoring the Card limit. Refund for other payment methods can be processed by the merchant itself, usually by transferring the money back.
Refund process for Credit Card normally takes 7-14 working days. Refund for Debit Card might take longer, up to two months; and customer needs to contact their Issuing Bank as well.
Refund request took couple of days because it needs to be coordinated with various parties, such as acquiring and issuing bank. If customer complained that their limit has not been returned, merchant should ask the Acquiring Banks and customer should ask the Issuing Bank as well. It usually need data of: orderID, merchants details, customer details, and approval code.
