Refund overview

When a refund is processed it will show as a credit, or negative amount in your bank account. Refunds typically take several business days to return the funds to your account. Funds should arrive between 5 - 10 business days. This length of time depends on your bank's timeline of events, not Heroku's.

If we've confirmed that we've processed a refund for your account, and you haven't received the funds, please open a support ticket. We'll be happy to investigate this issue.
