Set Refund Speed

Set the speed to process Refunds.


You can configure the speed at which all the refunds should be processed for your customers.

Set Default Speed of Refunds🔗

Depending on your business needs, you can select from the following:

  • Normal Refund
    In this mode, the speed attribute is set to normal. The customers will receive their refunds within 5-7 business days.

  • Instant Refund
    In this mode, the speed attribute is set to optimum. Razorpay attempts to initiate fund transfer using IMPS, NEFT or UPI. The customer will receive the refunds instantly. If unsuccessful, Razorpay processes the refund via the normal speed.

The selected speed is set as the default speed and all the refunds, thereafter, will be processed at the chosen speed.
