How can we ask for - "To make repayment for expense or loss incurred"?

I have to write a mail to online e-Commerce site as on their site they have mentioned wrong detail/amount for product and I have made extra payment.

So is this sentence correct?

Please do the needful and reimburse.

    I've paid more for the product. Kindly check, and refund - this may work.

reimburse needs an object, like this:

Please reimburse me for the difference in price

You can write something like this :

The amount you mentioned for the product is wrong, and because of which I did an extra payment. So, in that case you need to refund me the extra amount that I paid for the product.

  • 'I made an extra payment...' '...did an extra payment'* is typical Indian! :)

    @MaulikV, I'm an Indian and I'm proud of it as well. I guess its way of writing. you liked that way so you wrote it and I wrote that. India is not all included in this topic.

  • @Pallavi I'm an Indian and thus I know this! However, you missed my point. I said it's an Indian way to write OR It's Indian English. I have been asking many such questions on InE. For instance, if you use 'Kindly do the needful', others will surely say - it's typical Indian!

    @Ms.Nehal Indian English has nothing to do with the country, India. It is a writing style like British and American English. All are proud of their respective countries. The only aim of this platform is to learn the correct way of writing English.
