Payment Methods🔗

We support the following payment methods for Instant refunds. The list of banks that support Instant refunds differs according to payment methods.

Refunds are sent back to the original payment method used in making the payment. For example, if a credit card was used to make the payment, the refund amount was pushed to the same credit card.

Processing Time🔗

For all credit card transactions, the time taken depends on the amount to be refunded:

Refund Amount

Time Taken for refund

Up to ₹2 lakhs

Credited immediately to the customer's account.

More than ₹2 lakhs

Credited within two hours during business hours.
For refunds raised beyond working hours, it can take up to 1 business day for the refund to reflect in the customer's account.

Refund Fees🔗

Razorpay charges a small transaction fee to process Instant refunds. The fees is deducted directly from your account balance and reflects under the Refunds tab on the Razorpay Dashboard. In cases where the Instant refund fails and the refund takes 5-7 working days, the levied fee is credited back to your account balance. The fee break-up is shown in the end-of-the-month invoice generated by Razorpay. You can view and download the details from the Instant Refunds Reports from the Razorpay Dashboard.

Watch Out!
In the case of instant refunds, the MDR fees and associated costs charged or deducted for the transaction will not be refunded.
