MCP Refund

Restores all or part of the funds from a MCP Purchase or MCP Pre-Authorization Completion transaction to the cardholder's card.

Unlike a MCP Purchase Correction, there is a record of both the initial charge and the refund on the cardholder's statement.

For processing refunds on a different card than the one used in the original transaction, the MCP Independent Refund transaction should be used instead

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