Customer Refund Processing Time

Question

I issued a refund to a customer; how long will it take for them to get their money back?

Answer

Stripe submits refunds to your customer’s bank immediately, but depending on the bank processing time, it can take anywhere from 5-10 business days to show up on your customer’s bank account.

Additional Information

  • In some cases, the refund might be processed as a reversal, meaning the original payment will disappear from the account statement entirely and the balance will reflect as though the charge never occurred.

  • If your customer does not see the refund after ten business days and they are still seeing the original charge on their bank statement, they should reach out to their bank for more information. If there is further difficulty in processing the refund, contact Stripe Support.
