[ISSUE] Paypal interprets partial refund as "refunded"

Post by Martin »

Something that I know has been picked up on with the Paypal module but something you need to be aware of as it could confuse your record keeping.

If you issue a partial refund through paypal it will issue an IPN/API command to the cart that marks the appropriate order as "refunded" even though it's just a partial one.

Neat that it actually picks up that something has been refunded but an obvious issue that there's no "partial refund" option or logic involved.

Has anyone ever looked into doing something with this? It is creating a mess in record keeping as it is not uncommon for us to refund a single item out of a large order but ISC then refunds the entire order.
