Things to Know

  • For further assistance regarding refunds, contact Authorize.Net Support at 877.447.3938.
  • Petly Plans does not update payment information when a refund is issued in Authorize.Net. It is necessary to mark the payment as a Chargeback in Petly Plans. This will revert the payment to an unpaid status.
  • Refunds can be given within 120 days of the initial charge within Authorize.Net.
  • Refunds generally take 3 – 5 days to return funds to a client account.
  • eCheck refunds require available funds in order to approve a refund amount. Meaning, if the hospital does not currently have other eCheck transactions pending to cover the refund amount or funds set to be deposited into the hospital banking account the refund request will be declined.
