$comment = "We hope you are satisfied with the refund process.";
$reason = "Duplicate purchase";

try {
    $refundedOrder = $client->issueRefund($sessionID, $orderReference, $amount, $items, $comment, $reason);
catch (SoapFault $e) {
    echo "refundedOrder: " . $e->getMessage();
var_dump("refundedOrder", $refundedOrder);
