Order cancellation



Do not use the CANCEL OR REFUND service but the UPDATE ORDER service described in this chapter to proceed with the partial or total cancellation of an order.

It is possible to cancel an order totally or partially.

If the new amount of the order is inferior to the amount charged to the client, Floa will reimburse the client directly for the excess amount. Future installments will be canceled.

The cancellation is done by calling the UpdateOrder method.



  • It is not possible to cancel an order dating back more than a year.
  • It is not possible to partially cancel a 10X order.
  • If a partial or a total cancellation occurs when an installment is being debited (between D-6 and D+1, D being the due date), the service will answer OK and the cancellation will only be processed on Floa side when the installment has been paid (i.e when the funds are captured).
  • In the case of partial cancellation, Floa fees will not be refunded to the customer even if a second partial cancellation totally cancels the order.
  • When you request the total or partial cancellation of an order, there is no way to cancel this cancellation request.

To make a refund, the following information must be available at the time of the request (i.e., this data must be stored in your system to be retrieved) :

  • MerchantID
  • MerchantSiteID
  • ScoringToken

These data allow us to find the order reference in our system and to proceed with the cancellation/refund.

It is possible to make several successive partial cancellations for the same order.

Be careful when several calls to the UpdateOrder method are made for the same order, it is necessary to update the OldAmount field accordingly.


OldAmount is the amount of the order without fees. This is the amount you sent as input to the Eligibility method.


The call must be made in POST REST, body in JSON

Cancellation service return codes

  • responseCode 0 or 4: the cancellation has been received by our service and should therefore be considered as OK on your side.
  • responseCode 1 or 2: the cancellation is refused, there is no problem, it means that the cancellation can't be processed. To understand the refusal, it is possible to look at the responseMessage.
  • response Code 3 or 5: technical error. The cancellation cannot be processed due to a technical problem. The responseMessage can help to understand where the problem lies.
