EComm Refunds related to Transactions

Hey,

How does a refund relate to a transaction ? Is a transaction created for a refund every time, or is the original transaction modified with the refunded amount ? This is specifically how it's reflected in the database.

 

Thanks,

Cameron

    Hey Cameron,

     

    The original transaction's AmountRefundedMinorUnits is updated in Transaction table along with a new entry in the TransactionLog table for that specific transaction.

  • Ok, so it's expected behaviour for the refund to not be a new transaction but modify an existing one; and create a log for it. Wanted to make sure that was the case before modifying reports that look at the transaction table. Thanks Tunc.

  • Correct. It is better to use TransactionLog table for reporting purposes.
