KEY TERMS & TIPS:
How do I refund tickets?
Via the Orders page, selecting your order and choosing which Channel you want to record the refund against.
How do refunds work?
When you start a refund, the items in the order will be added to the basket in the box-office as items to cancel and refund (they will appear in red). You can refund all the items, or remove those items that you want to keep and still be valid.
Once the basket has only the items that you want to refund, select the payment method to refund to and complete the refund transaction - a new order will be created that is linked to the original order.
See our Step-by-Step guide below for more info.
Linked orders: What is a Parent and Child Order?
A Parent Order is the original order that is being refunded.
A Child Order is the new order that is created after a refund, that is linked to the Parent Order.
Once a refund is completed then you will be shown the Child Order page, which will have a hyperlink to the original Parent Order, to ensure you can easily navigate between the original and new orders.
What is a Channel?
The place where tickets are sold, e.g. Online Channel, Box Office, Ticket Agent, etc.
