What is the best / easiest way to refund a customer who paid a QuickBooks Online invoice through QuickBooks Payments?

When I make a refund receipt, I need to process the credit card refund through the original credit card. It feels a bit awkward (maybe just me) to ask a customer for their credit card details to make the refund. I know we can save the credit card info for customers who physically use their cards in the store, but what can we do about customers who pay online, who pay the invoices that are emailed them? I notice that I do not the credit card info saved for such off-site customers. In other words, how do we make the refund process easier for the customer who makes the request days after the batch closes? Do I need to first go to QuickBook Payments, find the correct transaction to reverse, and then make a refund receipt in QuickBooks Online?

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
