Marking an Order as Refunded in Omnivore does NOT refund the order in My Deal or your platform. The "Mark as Refunded" option for an order in Omnivore will stop any updates being made to the order in Omnivore, your eCommerce platform or MyDeal.

To refund an order, please follow the following guidelines:
- How to cancel and refund the order in My Deal:
- Cancel the order in your eCommerce Store
- How to mark the order as 'Refunded' in Omnivore
1. How to cancel and refund the order in My Deal:
If you need to cancel an order or provide a refund to a customer for any reason you can use the Issue Refund feature available in your MyDeal Seller Portal.
- Log in to your MyDeal Seller Portal
- Find the order you would like to refund.
Orders can be located by searching the order number using the search box on the Seller Portal Homepage, via the deal's Client List page, Client List: All Customer List page available through the My Deals tab, or the Order details page
- Click the ‘Actions’ dropdown button in the order row
- Click ‘Issue Refund’
The Issue Refund page will open, displaying the order details. This will include:
- The available amount that can be refunded
- The amount that has already been refunded to date
- In the Refund Amountcolumn edit the values to the amount you want to refund back to the customer.
- The Item and Shipping amounts must be entered separately. By default these values will be displayed as the amount that is available to refund.
- If there is no amount available to refund then the field will be disabled and shown as grey with '0.00'
- If you only want to refund the item then ensure to edit any available shipping amount to '0.00' (or vice-versa if you are only refunding shipping).
- The Total Refund Amount is the amount the customer receives
- Select a refund ‘Reason’ from the dropdown (required).
NOTE: MyDeal will monitor the refund reasons so it is very important that you select the most appropriate refund reason for reporting.
- Enter in a ‘Refund Note’, this is optional and only view-able to you and MyDeal.
- By default 'Send notification to buyer' is ticked which means the customer will receive an email to notify them of the refund. You can also choose to include a note for the buyer to explain why you are refunding.
- Once you are ready to submit the refund click the ‘Refund $’ button. This will show the total amount you are refunding.
2. Cancel the order in your eCommerce Store
Canceling the order in your eCommerce store will NOT refund the buyer. As Omnivore does not handle or send the actual payments for MyDeal orders to your eCommerce store it is not possible to refund directly from there.
The cancellation in your eCommerce store is purely done for accounting/inventory/reporting purposes if desired.
The cancellation process will vary depending on what eCommerce platform you are using.
