How The Refund Processing Actually WorksDisputes are initiated by buyers.
Disputes can only be initiated on refundable products that have successfully been purchased.In woocommerce terms,when order status is completed or processing.
Then the proceeding page :
Immediately the dispute has been initiated by the buyer,the following happens :
-the order status changes to “dispute” in the admin.
-buyer receives dispute initiation email
-admin receives dispute initiation email
At this stage admin can do 3 things :
1. Email buyer for further discussion.
2. Process the refunds via the payment gateway used or fall back to step 1. to request for method of payment the buyer would prefer.
After admin has refunded the payment,admin can then click on “Approve” dispute button on the order page. This automatically marks order as refunded,email notification is sent out to both buyer and admin,amount refunded is deducted from the total sales.
3. Decline the refunds. If refunds is declined status of order is automatically changed to “Not Refunded”,buyer and admin receives notification email and the buyer can not initiate dispute for that same order again.
Superb Refund Settings Per product-On product page in admin,you can configure the refund cost against the duration. A quick example of this is :
Product X costs $500. We can set the refund rule like :
$400 will be refunded if dispute is initiated by the buyer after 7days of purchase.
$300 will be refunded if dispute is initiated by the buyer after 14days of purchase.
$200 will be refunded if dispute is initiated by the buyer after 30days of purchase.
$150 will be refunded if dispute is initiated by the buyer after 45days of purchase.
$100 will be refunded if dispute is initiated by the buyer after 60days of purchase.
