Refund notifications

Volt will send you one notification per refund request, which will detail its final status.  You’ll get a notification whether you initiated the refund from the API or in Fuzebox.

About the notification
  • This notification will be delivered to your payment notifications URL
  • As this is a Connect notification, the User-Agent will be Volt/2.0
  • It will contain an X-Volt-Type header containing refund_confirmed or refund_failed so that you can easily identify the message format to process
