How To Issue A Refund With Create Payments

While we hope you won’t need to do it too often, issuing a refund through Create Payments is a quick and easy process for both you and your customer.

With Create Payments you are able to offer full and partial refunds from with your Create account! This means you can go into an order directly from your Order Management or your Create Payments dashboard, and refund orders in part or in full.

Refunds can only be processed when funds are available in your 'reserve' fund prior to settlement. You may wish to set up a reserve with Worldpay to ensure you always have a certain amount held in case of this situation. Please speak with Worldpay directly to enable this facility.

Should you need to refund a transaction without available funds please contact Worldpay customer services via phone 0870 366 1233 (option 6 for Customer Services - quoting your admin code) to arrange a payment in to your account - this will then cover the refund.
