Refund a Tyro payment

If you need to refund a customer's payment at any point, that was processed via Tyro, this can be done on the Tyro terminal directly.

Enable refunds

Before you can process a refund, you will need to enable this on your terminal. The refund function is disabled by default for security reasons. 

This will require you to set a password, which must be used every time you want to process a refund.

  1. On the terminal, press the Menu button.
  2. When prompted, enter the admin password and press OK.
  3. Go to the Configuration menu (5).
  4. Select Refunds (2) from the options.
  5. Select Enable (1) from the options.
  6. Enter a password to be used for refunds.
  7. Press OK to apply.

Process a refund

  1. On the terminal, press the Menu button.
  2. Select Transactions (1) from the list.
  3. Select Refund (2) from the options.
  4. Complete the rest of the onscreen instructions to process the refund.

If the wrong password is used, the terminal will lock you out for a period of time. After 15 incorrect attempts, the terminal will be blocked and you will need to contact Tyro Customer Support directly.

Note: Integrated refunds are coming to Timely soon. This will allow you to process the refund within Timely as well. In the meantime, you will need to Delete the payment in Timely as well.
