Path Parameters


The unique identifier of the transfer to be returned.

Request Parameters


Contains information about the amount to be returned.

Max length: 80

Your internal reference for the return. If you don't provide this in the request, Adyen generates a unique reference. This reference is used in all communication with you about the instruction status.

We recommend using a unique value per instruction. If you need to provide multiple references for a transaction, separate them with hyphens ("-").

Response parameters

After submitting a call, you receive a response message to inform you that your request was received and processed.

Depending on the HTTP status code of the response message, it is helpful to build some logic to handle any errors that a request or the system may return.
