Also, more information can be found under Dashboard > Payments > Payouts > Where is My Payout?
How to refund orders
Refunding orders is possible inside your Stripe Dashboard.
🚨 Only Captured orders can be refunded. If your order is still open in your ChatFood dashboard, the payment has not been captured yet, just authorized. In this case, simply Cancel the order and the transaction will get voided. No refund is necessary then.
Go to Payments, find the order you want to refund by using the filters and initiate the refund by clicking the Refund button on the top-right corner. Then follow the steps from Stripe. Please note that ChatFood plays no part in the refund process.
