Refund a Donation

Modified on 18 May

Donations to ticket events can be refunded through your event dashboard. Note that these refunds are separate from store refunds or ticket refunds--there is currently no way to refund an entire transaction at once. To refund a donation to a ticket event, you will need to have money in your Refund Reserve. 

Adding to the Refund Reserve

The Refund Reserve is the source of refund money. It is found under Financial >> Refund Reserve on the Event Dashboard. It must be funded BEFORE you process any refunds, and will also be required for Referral Rewards.

There are three ways to fund the reserve. They are:

  • Enter your credit card to add money to the reserve. This may be necessary if all payments have been made to you and there will not be future donations on this site (e.g., if it is a limited-time campaign), yet you want to process refunds. This situation might occur if you have to cancel an event.
  • Set an additional hold. This will hold back a set amount of money from future payments until that additional amount is reached.
  • Move money to the refund reserve. If you are awaiting the payment of a balance owed to your nonprofit, then you can set aside some of that future payment into the refund reserve.

To refund a donation, navigate to your Donation List: Event Dashboard >> Donations >> Donations List.


Use the search filters to find the donation. 

Then click Refund beside Transaction ID.

You can enter a note on the refund for your records:

Finally, click Issue Refund.
