Lavu POS 4 - Void or Refund a Payment

This article will demonstrate two different actions: Voiding a payment from the Closed Orders screen and Refunding a payment from the Checkout screen.

Voiding and refunding payments are both available in the same popup. Your circumstance determines which option you should choose.

A good rule of thumb is to remember: Same Day Void, Next Day Refund. This is, of course, dependant on your processor and circumstances. For example, issuing a partial refund requires that you select refund. Additionally, some processors will only allow you to process refunds. Either way, here is how to do it.

Void/Refund Payment from Closed Order Screen

These instructions are for the NEW Lavu POS 4 App. Download it from the app store today!

  1. Tap on the hamburger menu
  2. Tap on Orders
  3. Tap on Closed Orders
  4. Tap on the order that has the payment you need to void/refund
  5. Tap on the payment in the order that you want to void/refund
  6. Tap either Void or Refund
  7. Enter the reason when/if prompted
  8. Tap Continue

NOTE: The ability to void/refund a payment from the closed orders screen is dependant on enabling a setting in Advanced Location Settings. This setting is disabled by default.

Void/Refund Payment from Checkout Screen

First, you will need to reopen the order if it has been closed.

  1. Tap on the hamburger menu
  2. Tap on Orders
  3. Tap on Closed Orders
  4. Tap on the order that has the payment you need to void/refund
  5. Tap Reopen Order 

Then:

  1. Tap Checkout
  2. Tap the payment you want to void/refund
  3. Tap either Void or Refund
  4. Enter the reason when/if prompted
  5. Tap Continue

Next, decide what you want to do with the order. Are you voiding the order? If so, tap the VOID button in the checkout screen. Otherwise, select the appropriate payment type to close out the order. Then, reclose the order (Hamburger menu > Functions > Checkout Functions > Re-close Order).
