MCP Independent Refund

Credits a specified amount to the cardholder’s credit card. The credit card number and expiry date are mandatory.

It is not necessary for the transaction that you are refunding to have been processed via the Moneris Gateway.

This transaction request is the multi-currency pricing (MCP) enabled version of the equivalent financial transaction.

Things to Consider:

Because of the potential for fraud, permission for this transaction is not granted to all accounts by default. If it is required for your business, it must be requested via your account manager.
