Retailing Capabilities Verification Guidance

As of v19.2 of the standards, full Order cancellations are carried out with using a combination of OrderReshopRQ/RS and OrderChangeRQ/RS. By simulating the cancellation via OrderReshopRQ/RS, the Airline can now return refundable amounts, residual values on any OrderItems and available options pertaining to the refund payment mechanism.

The process begins by entering the OrderID of the Order the Seller requests to cancel:

The Airline then proceeds to construct an Offer which reflects the Order cancellation, complete with differential values, presenting refundable amounts to the Seller.

Once the Seller understands and agrees to the outcome of the cancellation, the Seller confirms this operations by repeating the OrderID into OrderChangeRQ, thus triggering a cancellation and refund:

If no preference on refund payment mechanism are passed by the Seller, the Airline will default the refund to the original form of payment.
