Adjust a Sale Total (Partial Refunds)

Important Note: There is a 90 Day Limit for refunds. Any order more than 90 days in the past cannot be refunded in the Olo Dashboard. You will need to request the refund directly with your E-Commerce Payment Processor.


You can use the Olo Dashboard to adjust a sale total for an order at any time.

1. Login to the Olo Dashboard at

2. Click on the “Orders” tab on the left side of the screen.



3. You may be prompted to select a store if you have access to more than one location through your Dashboard. If so, choose the store from the right hand section and click on “Confirm Store Selection”.

4. Enter the Olo Order ID into the Specific Order Field or search your order by clicking on “Search by timeframe” or “Search by Transaction”.

6. Next, select the reason for the payment adjustment:

Single Card (Credit or Gift) Example:





If your brand uses Split Payments (allowing multiple Credit Cards and/or Gift Cards to fulfill an order),  you will have the option on which Card you would like to partially adjust after you select the reason. Select the reason, and then click on the particular card you are looking to adjust.

Split Payment Example:




7. Once you have the particular reason for the refund (and selected the particular card to adjust in a Split Payment Scenario), you can move forward with making a partial adjustment to the card. Depending on which state you are in, please ensure you are calculating the necessary tax rate for the refund or additional charge. For the Single Card scenario below, please enter what you want the new amount should be in each field. On the confirmation page, it will show you how much you will be refunding.  


Once you have made the necessary adjustment, please click 'Review Adjustments Details' to move forward.

Important Information:
This will submit the refund or additional charge to the payment processors for settlement. You will not be able to reverse this action.

  • For any refund or additional charge you process, the customer will automatically receive a confirmation email to the email address on file.
  • The adjustment transaction will process immediately and should show up on the customer’s credit card statement within 1 to 3 days.
  • You can only adjust an order once. For any subsequent adjustments within the order in question, please contact your processor for further assistance. 

If you do not see a tab mentioned in our Support site, it is likely because your account does not have that tab activated. If this is the case, please contact your Corporate team for more information.
