Note: In order to refund event payments, you must be using the Member Jungle payment gateway, or a Stripe payment gateway and your attendee must have paid using these methods (manual payments will not refund through the events system).

Find the attendee that requires a refund, and click the rtaImage (94) cancel icon next to their ticket. Each refund must be processed separately on a per attendee basis.

Important Notes Regarding Refunds

  • The ability to refund must be activated for your site. If you do not have this ability, but would like it, please complete a request  to agree to the terms and conditions of refunding, and have this this function turned on for you.
  • Refunds can only be issued to users who have paid using the Member Jungle gateway, or a connected Stripe payment gateway. No other gateways or manual payment options can be refunded through the events module.
  • Member Jungle Service fees are not refundable. If you absorb your event service fees, the member will get a full refund, but your club will still have paid the service fees at the time of payment. For this reason, you may want to edit the refund amount to your attendee.
    If you pass on the fees to your member, the refund will be for the ticket amount only.
    • Example 1: 
      Using Member Jungle gateway: A member pays $100 for a ticket, and you have the Member Jungle event service fees of $2.49 set to pass on to your members. This will make the total payment from your members, $102.49 at the time of purchase. When you issue a refund, the member will receive $100. ($102.49 less the $2.49 service fee) 
    • Example 2:
      Using Member Jungle gateway: A member pays $100 for a ticket and you have the Member Jungle event service fees to $2.49 set to absorb by your club. When you issue a refund, the member will receive $97.51 ($100 less the $2.49 service fees). 
    • Example 3:
      Using your own Stripe gateway: A member pays $100 for a ticket, and you have the event service fees of $1.20 set to pass on to members at the time of purchase. Totalling $101.20. When you issue a refund, the whole $101.20 (ticket price & service fee) will be refunded to your member. The service fees from Member Jungle will not be refunded to your club, therefore you may wish to edit the refund amount to your members.
    • Example 4:
      Using your own Stripe gateway: A member pays $100 for a ticket, and you have the event service fees set to absorb by your club. This means that the club will pay the $1.20 service fee out of the $100 ticket price, and will receive $98.80. When you issue a refund, the attendee will get $100 back. Which means your club is out of pocket the $1.20. For this reason, you may wish to edit your refund amount to reflect the amount received.
  • If your club has already received the payment from your gateway into your bank account, the refund will be drawn back from your bank account that is nominated on your Stripe account.
  • All refunds must be processed individually on a per attendee basis. Not bulk cancellations and refunds can be issued.
