Why does my order still show as unfulfilled after issuing a partial refund?

24 0 1



A customer of mine was a few hours late to my sale so I applied the 40% refund to her order but and fulfilled it. However, I still have a notification saying the order is unfulfilled and that I "owe the customer" the remaining 60%. My customer has already received her products and the 40% was deducted from my payout so I am confused why it is saying I "owe the customer".


Any tips, explanant

All the best, Hyde.
