• How do I refund a client?
Refunds can be issued from within your Stripe Dashboard. You can find more information about how to process the refund here: https://stripe.com/docs/refunds#dashboard
Credit Card Refunds: You can process a refund for a credit card payment once it appears on your Stripe Dashboard. After you issue the refund you can use this guide to help your client locate the refund if they are not seeing it on their statement: https://stripe.com/docs/refunds#tracing-refunds
Note: If you refund a payment soon after it was processed, instead of the client getting a credit to their statement, the original charge will drop off of their statement.
ACH Refunds: ACH payments take up to 5 business days to receive acknowledgment of their success or failure. Because of this, refunds cannot be initiated until the payment is complete after 5 business days. After the payment status is "Succeeded" in your Stripe Dashboard, you can process the refund.
You can also tell your client to contact their bank and cancel the transaction before it is completed.
Additional Refund info:
Refunds are processed immediately. However, they can take 5-10 days to show up on the customer's side. Once issued, a refund cannot be canceled.
Please note that, while there is no fee to process a refund, any fees collected on the initial transaction will not be refunded. Click here for more information on how to process a refund from your Stripe Dashboard.
Refunds may only be processed to the original form of payment. In the rare event of a failed refund, the bank will return the refunded amount to Stripe and they will add it to the intended recipient's account balance.
• How do I charge a client in a currency other than USD?
At the moment we can only charge clients in USD. Even if your Stripe account is set up with another currency, any payment made through Studio Designer Client Portal, or invoice/proposal Pay Now links will charge the amount in USD.
We are working on updating our integration to allow for additional currencies.
