For RefundOption, the deprecated values on the US site are MerchandiseCredit and Exchange. Instead of these deprecated values, the seller must offer a MoneyBack or a MoneyBackOrExchange refund option. Consider using the MoneyBackOrExchange option when you have the depth of inventory to support an exchange for a different size, color, or undamaged unit. Otherwise, use the MoneyBack option if you have limited inventory.
