Refund:

If you are awarded a refund by us and you have used the Bitpay payment system, the refunded cryptocurrency amount will be calculated using the BBB rate at the time the refund is made. The precise cryptocurrency amount will likely be different than the original amount sent, but its value will be equivalent in the pricing currency. 

You will receive an email from noreply@bitpay.com. This email will come to the email address you originally entered when you paid, telling you the merchant has authorized a refund. You will need to use the same shopper ID you used when making the payment to claim your refund. 

You may also receive a refund email in the event you underpay or overpay an invoice. In the event of payment exception, you will be charged the miner fee of your refund. In the case of a merchant initiated refund, fees will be charged to the merchant. Users must log in to receive refunds for payment exceptions.

f your refund is the equivalent of 1000 USD or more, you will need to complete the BitPay ID verification process in addition to the steps above. You will need to provide your legal name, country of residence, and birthdate. Then, you will take pictures of an approved document and take a selfie. Be sure to type your legal name exactly as printed on your identification document. Ensure that the entire document including all four corners is visible.

BitPay will refund a payment to either a refund address supplied by a purchaser using the payment protocol specified in BIP0070 or with explicit confirmation from the merchant or purchaser. BitPay will always confirm that a refund address is valid before returning any payment.

Refunds usually take 1-2 business days to appear in your wallet once approved.
