Amazon Pay Suspended; How do I refund?

Dear all

We are a new account on AmazonPay and just had a temporary suspension pending information.

Now I see we cannot refund buyers?

I am wondering why this is the case and how on earth we can refund people now?

Any suggestions welcome.

Best wishes


Thank you for reaching out and sharing your concern regarding the temporary suspension on your new AmazonPay account and the issue with refunding buyers. I understand how important it is to ensure a seamless experience for both you and your customers.

Regarding the inability to refund buyers, I would like to inform you that temporary suspensions are put in place by AmazonPay as a standard procedure to verify account information and ensure the security of all parties involved. During this suspension period, certain functionalities, such as refunding, may be temporarily restricted to prevent unauthorized transactions or potential misuse.

To address the issue and proceed with refunding your customers, I recommend taking the following steps:

  1. Contact AmazonPay Support: Reach out to AmazonPay’s dedicated customer support team directly. They have the expertise and tools to assist you with the temporary suspension and provide guidance on how to initiate refunds during this period. They will be able to provide specific instructions tailored to your account and situation.
  2. Provide the requested information: As part of the suspension process, AmazonPay may request additional information or documentation to verify your account. Ensure that you promptly respond to any inquiries or requests they have, as this will help expedite the resolution and restoration of normal account functionalities.
  3. Communicate with your customers: In the meantime, it’s crucial to maintain open lines of communication with your customers. Explain the temporary suspension situation and reassure them that you are actively working to resolve the issue. Apologize for any inconvenience caused and offer alternative solutions, such as providing store credit or exchanging products, until you can process refunds through AmazonPay again.
  4. Explore alternative refund methods: While your AmazonPay account is temporarily restricted, consider utilizing alternative refund methods available to you. Depending on your business setup, you may be able to refund customers through other payment gateways, bank transfers, or manual refund processes. However, ensure that these methods align with your business policies and comply with relevant regulations.

By following these steps, you should be able to address the temporary suspension and continue providing excellent customer service. Remember, AmazonPay’s customer support team is your best resource throughout this process, so do not hesitate to reach out to them for personalized assistance.

I hope this information proves helpful. Should you have any further questions or require additional support, please don’t hesitate to ask.
