Enable Refunds

By default, refunds are disabled on Tyro payment terminals. You'll need to enable these before you're able to complete a refund in Vend. This process will need to be completed on each Tyro terminal.

To enable refunds, open the menu, and select 'Configuration'.

Choose the 'Refunds' option and enable refunds. You'll need to enter your Refund password. If you haven't set a refund password on your Tyro terminal, this will be your Tyro admin password. If you don't remember this, contact Tyro customer support on 1300 966 639.

Once refunds are enabled, you'll be able to process refunds from your Vend store.

3. Pair the Tyro Terminal with your browser

IMPORTANT: Each terminal must be paired with the browser that will be using it.
