The steps to process a refund are the same as processing a reversal, but instead of clicking on Void in the Transaction Actions menu, you will click on Refund.
Confirm the amount to be refunded for the transaction and click on Refund.
A success message will pop-up confirming the action was successful.
The transaction will now show in your list of Latest Transactions as a REFUND.

Debit Cards: You can only refund debit transactions made in person, if the cardholder is present. You will need to use the Helcim Card Reader to process these refunds. Selecting refund from the transaction action menu will prompt the Card Reader. The cardholder will then need to enter their card.
