The iHeart Business Shop App can work with a number of different payment processors. Many of these processors handle refunding payments differently. As a result, if you're using a third-party processor like Stripe or PayPal, you'll need to refund orders directly from the dashboard of your payment processor. Click here to learn more.
However, iHeart Business Payments was built from the ground up to integrate seamlessly with the Shop App and iHeart Business. If you're using iHeart Business Payments, just scroll down a couple lines and see how easy it is to issue refunds for any e-commerce purchase.
Refund a Purchase Made via iHeart Business Payments
If your store uses the iHeart Business Payments processor, you can easily refund any e-commerce purchase directly from your iHeart Business Payments E-Commerce dashboard.
Refunds can be issued for any successful transaction displayed on either the All Transactions or Paid tabs.

Once the payment has been refunded, it will be automatically be updated with a Refunded payment status on your iHeart Business Shop App dashboard on the Orders page:
- Once the order is refunded, you will also need to update the fulfillment status on your Shop App orders dashboard with one of the following statuses:
Status Description Returned You shipped the product to the customer and they returned it. Will Not Deliver You refunded the purchase before shipping the product.
Refund a Purchase Made via a Third-Party Payment Processor
To refund purchases made via third-party payment processors, you will need to log in to your account on the payment processor's website and issue a refund from there.
If you issue a refund in PayPal or Stripe, your store will automatically sync up with refunded payments and will set the Refunded status for the respective order in your iHeart Business Shop App orders dashboard.
