This week, I learned another five things I did not know before:
Monday: Although charging a credit card is instantaneous, refunding really does take 3-4-5-6-or-more business days to process.
Tuesday: You can erroneously credit an expired credit card. The money does leave your merchant account.
Wednesday: You can credit a canceled credit card. The money does leave your merchant account.
Thursday: You can credit a debit card tied to a checking account that has been closed for months. The money does leave your merchant account.
Friday: If you charge somebody with an international credit card and then refund their money, by the time the money gets back on, the dollar will have weakened!
Lucky you to learn these things the fun fun-facts way!
