Turn refunds into future sales
Refund to store credits in one click
With Store Credits, you can turn Magento 2 refunds into a new sales opportunity. When giving a refund to a user, you can:
- refund the exact amount the customer spent on the order;
- refund the order amount, and add some extra credits to establish a positive relationship with the shopper, in case any negative situation occurred with the order;
- refund only part of the order to store credit, e.g. you made a special agreement that the customer wants to return only one item and re-order it as the size was off.
To process any type of store credit refund, simply enter the needed amount of credits and click the ‘Refund’ button.
Use store credit to pay from the backend
With both community or enterprise Magento 2, Store Credit extension can help you to avoid online refunds and use a customer’s store credit to pay for their orders directly in the backend. Pay in full if the balance covers the order price. If the price is higher than the store credits available, deduce the credit and inform the customer about the amount they still have to pay.
Drive purchases by offering credits as a discount
A customer may contact your support to ask for some clarification on the product information. In case a customer is satisfied with the present offer, a manager can immediately place an order. In doing so, the manager can charge in-store credit off from the balance if the customer doesn’t mind. In case the customer thinks the price is too high, the manager can still retain them by offering some extra credits to reduce the price without complicating the accounting.
Manage customers’ store credits with ease
For admins, having a tool to conveniently manage customers’ store credits is a must-have requirement. Use Magento 2 Store Credit & Refund extension to add/deduce Store Credit in one click. Access Balance History of any customer to make swift changes. Track changes your admins made in the Action column. Prevent wrongful store credits operations by leaving comments that relay the context of why store credits were deducted or added, keeping both shop staff and the customer informed.
Send email notifications on store credits updates
The extension automatically sends email notifications on main events, which helps admins to save time. Customers are notified of each key operation with their store credits, e.g. an order was placed with store credits, an admin user refunded an order with credits, or added/deducted credits, etc. Users can unsubscribe from the notifications if they wish.
Use store credits as pre-payment currency
For B2B businesses, it's important to offer customers some way of adding a pre-paid balance to their accounts. Companies can wire an agreed amount of money in advance. Admin will add the same amount as a store credit. And later on, customers can spend their pre-payments on real purchases without having to worry about going over budget limits. The credit is kept in Base Currency. Currency conversion for each store view uses the same currency conversion rates as other price-related calculations.
