Business value

In contrast to basic Refund functionality delivered by core Sylius bundles, Refund Plugin offers much wider range of possibilities and business scenarios.

Once an Order is paid, an Administrator is able to access Refunds section of a given Order and perform a Refund of chosen items or shipments. What's more, if a more detailed scenario occurs, an Administrator is able to refund an item partially.

From Administrator's point of view, every Refund request results in creating two entities:

  • Credit Memo - a document representing a list of refunded items (downloadable and sent to Customer via .pdf file)
  • Refund Payment - entity representing payment in favour of the Customer

Installation

  1. Require plugin with composer:

    composer require sylius/refund-plugin

    Remember to allow community recipes with composer config extra.symfony.allow-contrib true or during plugin installation process

  2. Copy plugin migrations to your migrations directory (e.g. src/Migrations) and apply them to your database:

    cp -R vendor/sylius/refund-plugin/migrations/* src/Migrations
    bin/console doctrine:migrations:migrate
  3. Copy Sylius templates overridden in plugin to your templates directory (e.g templates/bundles/):

    mkdir -p templates/bundles/SyliusAdminBundle/
    cp -R vendor/sylius/refund-plugin/src/Resources/views/SyliusAdminBundle/* templates/bundles/SyliusAdminBundle/

Beware!

This installation instruction assumes that you're using Symfony Flex. If you don't, take a look at the legacy installation instruction. However, we strongly encourage you to use Symfony Flex, it's much quicker! :)

Extension points

Refund Plugin is strongly based on both commands and events. Let's take RefundUnitsAction as an example. The whole process consists of following steps:

  • Getting data from request
  • Create a Command and fill it with data
  • Dispatch Command
  • Handle Command
  • Fire Event
  • Catch Event in Listener class

Using command pattern and events make each step independent which means that providing custom implementation of given part of refunding process doesn't affect any other step.

Apart from Events and Commands Refund Plugin is also based on mechanisms derived from core Sylius bundles such as:

Configuration of all elements mentioned above can be found and customized in config.yml file.
