    Ok, so this is one of those questions that most people really don't know the answer to. What happens if you make an Apple Pay payment, then have to restore the OS, causing the card to have to be re registered? Apple Pay returns at the store (in this case Sephora) require the device to be retapped.

    The receipt came out and it said it was approved but whether I actually get the money back remains to be seen.

    Who else has done this before?

    When I purchased the Apple Watch I used a split payment method and I used Apple Pay. So when they processed a return the amount I used was approved to go back to the card that I used with Apple Pay. Ended up restoring and set up new device. Couple days later checked my account and got my money back.

    Oh that's exactly what happened to me, I also used split payment on 2 Apple pay cards. When it came to matching up the device account numbers, nothing matched so I just winged it.

    Well, I don't know how it works either but I have gotten refunds in a couple of situations and the money showed back up on my card in a couple of days as a refund.

    Yeah, you should still get your refund. This is the first time merchants have to refund on new card numbers. Imagine having your card lost or stolen, and then having to do a return on something you bought on the old card. With the old number long gone, you'd be out of luck if the system didn't allow for credits a new account number.
