via the Paytabs Dashboard
You can perform the refund directly from your PayTabs dashboard, and your Drupal website/store will be affected/updated with this change that occurred on your PayTabs dashboard ONLY
If this configuration options is not enabled, refunding the transaction would proceed normally, however, your Drupal website/store will not be notified/updated of this change/refund.

You can fully refund (refund the whole transaction's amount) or partially refund (refund a partial amount from the whole transaction's amount) the transaction. However, for the IPN notification sent to your Drupal website/store (which allows your Drupal order to be affected/updated with this refund), ONLY the full refund is allowed, as you will not be able to specify which product on the Drupal order you will refund from the PayTabs dashboard.
