How to Issue a Refund 

1. Navigate to “Orders” tab in CommerceInterface.

Merchants can issue refunds to their customers in CommerceInterface. To begin this process, log onto CommerceInterface, then select the “Orders” tab on the left navigation bar. 

2. Find the order you plan to refund.

From the Orders page, use the “Search” tool at the upper-right corner of the page to find the order you would like to issue a refund for. You can sort by Order Status, Permalink, Tracking Number, or Order ID and more in order to filter for relevant order(s). 

Enter your desired information in the search fields, then click the blue Search button. Your Orders view will adjust to reflect your specified criteria. 

Once you have located the order you want to refund, click the Gear Icon at the right end of the corresponding row. This will take you to the Order Details page for that order.

3. Cancel order and issue refund.

From the Order Details page, find the "Action" column in the section labeled "Line Items".

Expand the drop-down menu and select "Return Item".  This will generate an additional prompt, asking you to confirm your decision. Select "Return Item LineItem".  Finally, you will be asked to determine how many units to refund (if greater than 1 was ordered) and provide the reason that you are issuing a refund. Select the appropriate reason from the options provided, then click "Apply."

The order will now be marked in the Goods Marketplace system to reflect this cancellation/refund.

If the customer has already been charged for the order, the refund will be issued by Groupon by the end of the day. This refund may take 7-10 business days to be processed by the customer's bank. If the merchant has already been paid for the order, the amount will be subtracted from their balance during the next payment period. Please see our Remittance Center guide for further details on how refunds are subtracted from your account.
