How to receive your funds from Checkout.com
To receive your orders funds from Checkout.com, please check the Checkout.com documentation on that dashboard or talk to your Checkout.com account manager or Checkout.com support team for more details.
Also, more information can be found under Settings > Payouts on your Checkout.com Dashboard.
How to refund orders
Refunding orders is possible inside your Checkout.com 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 Checkout.com. Please note that ChatFood plays no part in the refund process.
A note on 3DS
The acquiring banks in your country may require mandatory 3DS in all transactions. This integration does not send an automatic 3DS signal for all orders, so you may need to explore and set up the Risk Engine of Checkout.com to configure how you want 3DS to be applied to your transactions.
We recommend you to discuss this with your Checkout.com Account Manager to better understand and implement your rules correctly.
