Ask for a Google Voice refund

You can ask for a refund for some Google Voice calls and balances within 6 months of your original purchase. In addition, if your Google Voice account was migrated to an account managed by your organization, you can request a refund for the credit balance on your account.

  1. On your computer, open Google Voice.
  2. At the top left, click Menu and then Settings.
  3. On the left, click Payments.
  4. Click Billing history and then Refund balance. Google Voice will look different, but you're in the right place.
  5. Select your refund:
    • Get credit for a call: Review the eligible calls. Only recent calls under a certain length are eligible. Next to your call, click Refund.
    • Refund current balance: At the bottom, click Refund balance.

  • Purchases over 6 months old
