Refunding Money from Customer Account Balance
If your customer returned an item and you applied the amount of the refund to their house account, you will need to process the refund of the balance of the account in the following manner. EMV processors do not allow credits to be applied outside of a normal return. Since you have already returned the item, this type of transaction would fall under the category of a credit.

Enter the amount of the refund.
Select credit card type
Balance on order will be zero.
