We are currently investigating an issue which is causing some refunds for services using Stripe to be delayed. Refunds will be reported as successful in our API and admin tool, but the payment to the paying user may be delayed. We’re working with the relevant parties to resolve and any refunded payments across impacted services should resume as normal.
