Use these instructions for recording a credit card refund if you are not using the Merchant Service for QuickBooks.
Note: A return/refund transaction is not usually charged as a
separate item against your bank account. Instead, it is included with the
business day's credit card payment transactions that are deposited into
your bank account by the merchant account processor. By following these
instructions, the return/refund transaction is recorded in your QuickBooks bank
account as a separate transaction. Be sure to remember this when you reconcile
your bank statement.
