Refund Error

I need help with a error which I'm getting.  I'm using the Control Panel within Authorize to refund a customer with a payment of 9.99.


I click the refund button and have the amount of 9.99 and I get an error of:

The sum of credits against the referenced transaction would exceed original debit amount.


However, I do not see any previous credits anywhere.


Any suggestions?

Re: Refund Error

Hi Wstar,


You will only get that error if there is already a refund submitted against that particular transaction because you cannot refund for more than the original charge. I would recommend searching your transaction history using the last 4 digits of the card number to find the refund in question.
