Occasionally, a refund remains on hold (status 793). This is usually because the balance is insufficient and refunds cannot be executed.
- You can increase your balance via Financial > Accounts and statements > Actions > Raise balance. Or you can wait for new incoming payments that increases the balance.
- Subsequently, you can excute the refund via Transactions > Rejected refunds and payment orders > Select refund(s) > Resettle selection.
If a refund is on hold, it is not possible to create a new refund! This is done in order to prevent that a refund is created twice (and consequently executed twice).
A refund can also be rejected (status 690) or fail (status 490). Possible reasons include:
- The amount you’re trying to refund exceeds the amount of the original transaction.
- As pointed out above: a refund for this transaction is currently on hold and you are trying to create a new refund. This new attempt will be rejected immediately if the combined total exceeds the original amount.
For more information on the rejection reason, click on the Payment attempts tab of the refund transaction.

Click on a specific file to open it. This screen is static and will have to be refreshed manually every once in a while to display the latest status. Meanwhile, it will be validated whether the file contains the necessary entry fields. If this is not the case, the file will be rejected and will not be processed. If the file has been validated, an approval email will be sent to the user’s email address. This mail contains a unique code with regard to the file, which has to be submitted in the Buckaroo Plaza. Only then can the file be processed.
After the file has been processed, you can download the original file as well as the validation and processing results. If certain specific entry fields from the file failed at validation, you can also download them separately.
The validation results show all entry fields from the original file, and it is stated whether these passed the validation check or not. If validation failed, the reason shall be stated.
The processing results list all entry fields that passed validation and state whether this transaction was created. Here you’ll also find the transaction key.
The failed CSV fields list the entry fields from the original file that failed at validation.
By using the ‘Filters’ button, you can search for specific files. You can search by the date the file was uploaded.
Upload new batch: With this button you can offer one or more file(s) for processing.
Check the 'Upload the batch file as test' option to test the actions of the submitted file.

One of the features the Buckaroo Payment Plaza has to offer is the Buckaroo Payment Analyzer (BPA). If you would like to use this feature, please send an email to the Buckaroo Customer Service Center via [email protected].
