How to make a partial refund by 54-FZ

If you use the Yandex.Checkout solution for 54-FZ, the process of making a partial refund is slightly different.

  1. Find the required payment in the list and click the arrow, Chargeback.

  2. The Chargeback block is opened. Specify the reason behind the return (if necessary) and select the product.

    To get the desired refund amount, edit the quantity of the product, and the amount will be calculated automatically. You can use integers and fractions. For example, if the product costs 100 P, but you need to return 70 P, set the product quantity as 0.7.

  3. Confirm the refund with a text message password (it will be sent to the linked phone number).

  4. The refund request will then be sent for processing. Check the payment status in a few minutes: after successful processing, it will change to Partial refund.

How to Check if Refund is Complete

All your refund requests are stored on the page with the list of requests. Refresh the page to check the request status. The status will change in the case of a successful refund. If something goes wrong with the request, an error message will appear below it.

You can also find the required payment in the history by the payment ID (indicated in the request). If the refund is successful, its status will change and the transaction history will be added to it.

Refunds usually take several seconds. But the list of payments may take time to update: wait for about twenty minutes, then check.

Внимание. You cannot cancel your request for a refund. If you made a request and the refund is allowed for this payment, money will be returned to the user.

Commission on refunds

You don't pay the commission for a refund, only for a successful payment. If you're making a refund to the buyer, in some cases you'll need to pay the payment commission. This depends on your implementation method (you can check it in the settings section of Merchant Profile), as well as time and method of the refund.

Refund by Payment Order

In this case, Yandex.Checkout has already charged a commission for a successful payment, and this commission won't be refunded to you. No commission is charged for the refund. The buyer will receive the exact amount you specify in the payment order for the refund.

HTTP Protocol, Email Protocol, Payment module (HTTP Protocol) implementation method

If you make a refund on the day of payment (via protocol or your Merchant Profile), no commission is charged. The payment is simply canceled.

If you send a refund later (after 0:00 Moscow time), you pay the commission for the successful payment.

API or Payment module (API Protocol) implementation method

Payments via API are processed in two stages: first you create a payment, then you capture or cancel it (via the API or Merchant Profile). See documentation for details

If you have not captured the payment, you can simply cancel it: no commission is charged.

If the payment has already been captured, you can make a refund, but the commission will be charged without refund.

If you send payments with automatic confirmation, you will not be able to cancel them. Only refunds are available to you.
