Return - emvchipreturn

EMV return lets Converge users process refunds of a settled transaction. EMV Chip Return is available for both credit card and debit card EMV chips.

EMV Chip Returns can only affect a settled transaction.

Users can make partial returns linked to the same transaction. Converge will return an error 5091 if a return would cause the total returns issued on a settled transaction to exceed the original amount paid on the settled transaction.
