Store Credit App for Online Shopping

Customers wanting to return items is an unavoidable part of the experience for eCommerce businesses. While this may seem like a completely negative situation, it can actually be an excellent opportunity for transforming disappointed customers into returning shoppers. Incorporating store credits into your store’s return policy is a useful method with more advantages than you may believe. That’s where the Store Credit app can help.

Store credits transfer the amount of money that a customer would otherwise receive from a refund to their next order. This gives them the satisfaction of getting more for their money while allowing the company to pocket the payment. They also have a higher chance of keeping the customer’s loyalty, instead of losing them to a competitor. Shift4Shop’s Store Credits module can help online stores keep track of the transfers and provide excellent customer service.

There are also customers who simply believe that store credits result in a better deal.

You can issue store credits for any reason, whether it is as an alternative to a refund, as a reward for frequent buyers, or even as part of a marketing

  • How much control do I have over this feature?

The Store Credits feature provides users with plenty of control. Besides letting you decide when and under what circumstances you give store credits to customers, you can also control how many credits you issue. You can also issue credits to specific orders, as well as import and export them from their store.
