Refund a Subscription Order

  • Updated

Because Subscriptions for Shopify Checkout orders are processed through the Shopify checkout, all refunds need to be completed within Shopify. You can refund the full amount, a partial amount, or just refund the shipping. 

This article outlines how to create a refund as well as explains what happens to the transaction fees for a refunded order.

To refund a Subscription order, please follow the steps below.

  1. From within the Shopify admin, navigate to Orders.
  2. Search and select the specific order you'd like to refund.

Pro-Tip: For more information, please visit Shopify's article Creating returns and refunds.


Transaction fees

In Bold Subscriptions, the transaction fees are also returned to you when a refund is issued. The rates are adjusted based on the amount of the refund.  For example, if you were to issue a full refund on a purchase of $100, the entire 1% transaction fee of $1 would be refunded to you. If you were to issue a partial refund of $50, the transaction fee will be adjusted to $0.50.

This information can be found on your Shopify bill, as well as downloaded within a CSV file in Bold Subscriptions Reports.
