Refunding a ticket to a Debit Pay Code


How can a refund be issued on a debit card pay code?

Error: Change/Refund debit card transactions are not allowed.


For Non-EMV merchants (NCR Secure Pay):

Unlike credit cards, debit card pay codes cannot be used for refunds.

As an alternative:

  • When an invoice paid with a debit card is returned, create the Return Ticket and process the debit card using a Credit Card pay code.
  • When the return credit is settled as part of the regular settlement process, the refunded amount will be credited to the customer’s account.

For NCR Secure Pay merchants using EMV:

If using EMV - as of and 8.5.2, the Counterpoint restriction has been removed that prevented allowing returns/refunds to a debit card. Counterpoint now allows debit to be used for a refund and no longer returns the above error.  If the refund/return transaction is approved by the processor, the transaction in Counterpoint will complete successfully.
