If you choose to refund cash or a credit card, then the refund is processed similar to a sales transaction. You can refund the customer from the cash drawer or by scanning the credit card used for the original purchase.
Split Tender Refund
You can split a refund amount across multiple payment types. For example, if the total amount of the return order is $100. You can refund $25 in cash and $75 to a credit card.
Refunding a Partially Paid Transaction
If the customer makes a partial payment on an order, and then decides not to complete the order, the sales associate must perform a refund transaction. Cancelling the partially paid transaction is not supported in SCIS.

Finish the sale using cash as the payment method. If the customer made the partial payment with a credit card, then complete the transaction with partial payment from the credit card, and the balance in cash.
Make the refund of the sale. On the refund, create the same type of transaction as in Step 1. Create a partial refund with cash and, the amount on the credit card from the original sale.
Refund the customer’s credit card for the amount charged to the credit card from the original sale.
