Once set up
When you have successfully connected your Lightspeed Payments to your eCom store, use the following sections to learn more about refunding payments, reporting, chargebacks, and getting paid.
To refund a payment direct to the customer's card, the refund will need to be processed in your eCom store. Refer to the Issuing refunds with Lightspeed Payments article on the eCom Help Center for more information.
If you wish to refund the payment as a store credit or cash, this can be processed in Retail POS. Refer to the Returning a sale in Retail POS (X-Series) article for more information.
Payments processed via Lightspeed Payments in your eCom store will be recorded in your eCom Merchant Portal. These will be recorded as sales in the sales history on Retail POS.
However, payments processed via Lightspeed Payments in your eCom store will not be recorded in your Merchant Portal within X-Series.
Refer to the Understanding the Lightspeed Payments reports article on the eCom Help Center for more information.
A chargeback is a dispute initiated by a customer through their bank to reverse payment on a completed transaction. As a merchant, you can choose to either dispute the chargeback or choose to accept the chargeback.
Refer to the Managing chargebacks with Lightspeed Payments article for more information.
For US merchants using Lightspeed Payments, it will take two business days for transactional funds to be paid out. This pay-out is the transaction amount, less associated fees.
Refer to the Getting paid with Lightspeed Payments article for more information.
