Perform a Refund when: A customer requires a correction (see below), but the transaction was performed in a batch that has now been closed. A customer has exchanged an item and the price of the new item is less than the item they originally purchased. A customer has returned an item and wants their money back. Perform a Correction when: You need to cancel or void a Purchase or Refund transaction that was performed in the current open batch. When should I perform a Pre-authorization? When should I perform a Pre-Authorization Completion? Perform a Pre-authorization when: You need to authorize a temporary amount for a sale because you don’t know what the final amount will be, for example, at a hotel or car rental agency, or for a mail order or phone order. Perform a Pre-authorization Completion when: You know the final amount of the sale that was pre-authorized. Make sure you perform the Pre-authorization Completion on the same terminal using the same card number as the original Pre-authorization.
