We understand that refunds is always an unpleasant part of running the business. This is why, when you are processing your payments on Maroo, we help you to make the refund process as simple and secure as possible.
When can I submit a refund?
When a payment is in the Processing status, that means that funds have not been deposited to your bank account hence no refund is possible to be issued. Once you receive the payment to your bank account, you can initiate the refund.
Who pays the processing fees on refunds?
As always, Maroo gives you full control over the processing fees. There are a few terms we need to align first:
Invoice amount - amount you asked your client to pay you
Processing fees - fees assessed by Maroo to you or your client (depending on your settings)
Amount paid = invoice amount + processing fees (paid by client)
Deposit to bank = Total amount paid - processing fees (paid by you)
The amount paid will always be the maximum amount you can refund (click to enlarge the image).
While submitting the refund you can indicate if you want to cover the processing fees that your clients originally paid.
If you opted to take on the processing fees yourself, you will not have the option to refund the processing fees in this case as the client didn't pay any.
How long does it take to process the refund?
Once the refund has been initiated, it will take on average up to 5 business days to process it and deliver it to your client's original payment method.
Below is the list of notifications being sent to you and your clients related to the refund.
