HOW DOES ORVIS HANDLE CREDIT CARD REFUNDS?
Proof of payment must be provided with a return, after which a refund will be issued to the credit card you used for the original purchase.
I SEE DUPLICATE CHARGES ON MY CREDIT/DEBIT CARD?
This scenario usually happens when someone uses a debit card to pay for their order, but it can also happen with credit card purchases. When Orvis contacts a bank or credit card company electronically to verify funds are available, your bank or credit card company may remove or set aside the necessary funds to cover the order for a period of up to five business days.
When Orvis then actually processes a charge to the card, that first “pre-authorisation” charge should automatically be removed, but occasionally there is a delay, resulting in two transactions of differing amounts on your statement. Orvis will do everything we can to help you resolve this situation. Unfortunately, banks and credit card companies will not allow us to take care of this for you directly, because Orvis is not the cardholder.
As always, please contact our Customer Service department by email or phone if you have any questions or concerns.
