Please ensure that you follow your refund policy.
If the transaction is 3 months or older, you can’t refund directly from TRS. You will need to refund by check or through your credit card processor.
Your credit processor will charge a transaction fee for refunds. Consider refunds by check to save on transaction fees.
Some client’s refund policy is that all payments are donations in case of cancellation. Have you prepared to send donation documentation to your registrants? To refund a registration, go to the registration record. You can find it easily from a report or by using the quick search feature. If you are refunding a group registration, you will only be able to refund from the group record (click on the group tab and on the group name to access it) Go to the transaction tab and select the type of refund you would like to process (check or card) You can also process your refund by canceling the paid activity and selecting the refund option.
