Hello!

We are working on an app that is using Balance Transactions and Payouts API's to correlate and create financial syncs to an accounting software.

In scoping and developing the download and comparison of transaction and payout data, we have some transactions with the node payment_refund included in the response

It appears to be a standard refund or can be associated to the same type "refund" from https://shopify.dev/docs/admin-api/rest/reference/shopify_payments/transaction

Can anyone confirm that payment_refund is also a "refund" type transaction and should be treated the same? Is a payment_refund created when a user creates a refund for some generic amount that is not associated directly with a product, shipping charge, or tax etc. on an order?

Also, are there any other similar nodes that are not directly referenced in the balance transactions API documentation like this?

Thank you!
