To refund a customer, the operation is different between the modes using a virtual card (front and back) and the transfer mode:

  • Front and back mode (with virtual card): connect to your PSP (Payment Service Provider) and re-credit the virtual card; the customer's bank card will be re-credited afterwards.

  • Mode transfer: the claim is made from the dashbord Pledg :

    • Click on the button "Request a refund".
    • Fill in the amount you want to reimburse
    • Click on "Request a refund"; a notification will tell you that the refund has been taken into account.

Notes concerning the transfer mode

TIP

To refund the full amount of a customer's order, you must fill in the total amount of the customer's order; If you fill in the amount corresponding to the due dates drawn, this will correspond to a partial refund and the other due dates will be debited. To refund partially a customer's order, enter the amount you want to refund. This partial request will not necessarily produce a credit on the customer's credit card. The amount you want to refund will reduce or cancel the customer's most distant debit dates in priority.

TIP

Refunds are usually effective at D+1 and will appear at that time in the payment refund list in the dashboard.

# View latest transfers

For accounts set up in `transfer' mode, i.e. a daily transfer is sent to the merchant for an amount corresponding to all the orders of the day, the list of transfers made can be consulted.

This section allows you to reconcile the payment of your orders with the transfers you receive on your bank account.

  • Amount: the amount of the transfer
  • Status: sent when the transfer has been successfully issued
  • Reference: the reference of the transfer transmitted

In the "Payments" section, you can consult the list of corresponding orders and the reference you have sent to Pledg.
