The Connect Refund API allows you to refund a Payment that is currently in-flight. Payments that have been received can no longer be refunded.
The table below describes if and until when you can refund a Payment, given its
status and the Recipient's
Receiving Method Type
WIRE Payments are immediate; they cannot be refunded.
ACH Payments can be refunded until the bank transfer has been initiated.
EFT Payments can be refunded until the bank transfer has been initiated.
CHECK Payments can be refunded until the Check has been deposited.
How will I know if my Refund failed?
The Refunds API is synchronous, and thus you will be notified with an error message in the case that your Payment was non-refundable.
While Refunds are typically immediate, they may take several days to show up on statements. On average, Refunds take 3 to 5 business days to show.
