Easy returns

  • When a user confirms the purchase, funds are withdrawn from the user’s account and credited to the merchant’s account.
  • When a user returns goods, the funds are withdrawn from the merchant’s account and credited back to the user’s account.
  • When a user confirms the purchase, the transaction gets authorized, but the funds are not actually withdrawn from the buyer’s account.
  • If the user cancels the purchase or some technical problems occur, the sale is prevented. Soon after, the funds are credited back to the merchant’s account.
