There may be several reasons why you have not received your refund from your merchant yet.
Trustly is a digital payment provider which works as an intermediary between the consumer and the merchant. That means that we process transactions, we don't hold your funds, they are forwarded directly to your bank account from the merchant as soon as they initiate a refund in their system.
Trustly is not in a position to initiate refunds nor can we cancel transactions. In case you wish for a refund or you would like to cancel the transaction, please contact the merchant directly.
When a refund is initiated by the merchant, it will be sent directly from the merchant back to your bank account, without stopping at Trustly. We do not hold your funds. The timeframe for this is according to the merchant's refund policy.
Please be aware that there might be internal delays with handling refund requests for merchants related to Travel due to increased demand. Please contact your Travel merchant for further information.
Please also note that any notification about the purchase, confirmation email, tickets etc. is purely associated with the merchant. Therefore, Trustly is not able to provide you with this.
If you have any questions or need further details about your refund, we recommend that you contact the merchant so they can help you.
Since Trustly is not the receiving entity, we can not issue any receipts or official documents. Only the merchant can provide you with this since the payment belongs to them.
We are a digital payment provider — an intermediary between the consumer and the merchant. You have made a purchase directly from the merchant. If you need a receipt, please contact the merchant’s customer support.
The instant deposit limit is set up by the merchant and determines the amount that can be instantly transferred through Trustly. This message means that you have exceeded their instant deposit limit and that the transaction won’t be instant. When this message is displayed in the checkout (pop up window), in most cases you can either proceed with the payment or cancel it.
We can’t remove or raise the limit, but you can still make a deposit. Deposits above the instant deposit limit can take up to 2 bank days to reach the merchant. Keep in mind that sometimes it may take a bit longer due to public holidays and weekends.
For more information about the instant deposit limit, we recommend to follow up directly with the merchant.
Every payment is given a unique ID number when you initiate a payment through our service in the Trustly payment window (checkout on the merchant’s website), which allows it to be linked automatically to the correct merchant.
If a payment is manually made directly (outside of the payment window) to one of our collective bank accounts, no such unique ID number is given which is why it will not be linked to the intended merchant automatically.
In this scenario, you need to contact the intended merchant for them to review the transaction internally and claim the funds to their balance.
If you have initiated the transaction directly from your online bank and want it refunded, please reach out to us via our contact form and attach proof of payment so that we can help you out.
