When processing a refund, you may receive the following message: Data could not be saved. One or more fields in the request contains invalid data. This happened because the program could not process the credit card for the $xx. Credit card, (card type) #xxxx payment. 
This error occurs when the merchant account changes in the timeframe between the payment and the refund. For example a patron submits a payment to merchant account A. The organization then later changes to merchant account B (this could simply be a username change for the merchant account). When the organization attempts the refund, the refund is trying to go through merchant account B, prompting the error message to appear.

To refund the money back to the patron:
You will need to manually refund the patron by refunding the order through your merchant services portal.
