Partial Approval - Refund Void

This transaction (also known as a Refund Correction) is used only when a Partial Approval Refund transaction was entered incorrectly and needs to be cancelled.

IMPORTANT: This Refund Void transaction must be processed for each of the amounts refunded on the Partial Approval Refund transaction. For example, if the overall refund transaction total was $57.75, and two pre-paid credit cards were refunded for $25 each, then you would need to perform three Refund Voids; two for $25 each and a third for the remaining $7.75. See the Partial Approval Transaction Scenarios section for more information.
