Common Questions

Can I refund if I've withdrawn all funds on my collection?

If you have a US-currency account and you've already withdrawn all funds on your collection, you can do this by first "funding" your collection. Funding a collection allows you to add a balance to a collection by making a bank transfer (echeck) payment. It can take 3-5 business days for your funding payment to clear. Once it clears, you'll have funds available on your collection in order to initiate a refund. You can fund your collection by going to Manage > Balance Summary and clicking on "Fund Collection" on the left.

How do I make a partial refund?

Organizers can issue partial refunds on payments by refunding only one of several items or by refunding only a partial dollar amount. To issue a partial dollar amount refund, follow these steps:

  1. Click the three dots to the right of the payer's name and select the "Refund" button.
  2. On the next view, use the "Additional Refund" field to enter in the specific amount of the partial refund.
  3. A refund confirmation email will be sent to the payer and to the organizer. It typically takes 5-10 business days for a refund to be reflected on a payer's credit card.
