Tesco Cancellations, Returns and Refunds


This guide explains how to process cancellations, returns and refunds for Tesco orders.

Order Cancellation

To cancel a Tesco order, right click on the order from within the Open Orders screen and select Actions > Cancel Order. You will then need to select a cancellation reason from the drop-down menu before clicking OK.

If you would like to partially cancel an order, it will need to be split before the cancellation is processed. This can be done using the documentation available here.

Once the order has been cancelled in Linnworks, the cancellation will be sent to Tesco and no further action is required.
