Great! The refund will be officially processed through Simple Salon.
Here are some important notes to consider when processing linked refunds through Simple Salon:
- The paid for appointments will still appear on the 'Appointments' page so you'll need to move or adjust the appointment if you'd like to fit an appointment into the refunded appointment's slot.
- At the end of this process, the system knows that you've refunded items from the original transaction. If you try to refund the original transaction again, only the items that weren't processed (only the items you deleted from the refund) will be ready to be refunded.
- You cannot edit the price of the items or apply discounts to these refunds. If you try to, you'll be advised that 'Linked Refund items cannot be edited'. If you need to make these types of changes, you'll need to process a refund by following the instructions here
- If you've made a mistake creating a refund for an existing transaction you can delete the refunded transaction that you have just created as you would with any other transaction.
