You can now issue store credit codes. These allow your customers to make MicroStore purchases and redeem credits as payment.
Store credits can be used against the full total of a cart or as part payment.
Simply generate the store credit coupon code and send it to your customer as you would a discount code. Store credits can also be combined with other coupons and discount codes.
💡 Check out our Knowledge Base article on setting up coupon codes before creating store credits to help familiarize you with the process.
To create and set a value for your store credit:
Step 1: Go to Menu > Discounts > Coupons > Create coupon.
Step 2: You’ll be prompted to select a type. Select store credit and click 'Create'.
Step 3: Fill in all fields. The store credit value field will be the amount assigned to your credits. If you want to set a valid from/expiry date and time, you can set that in the ‘Availability’ section here.
☝🏽Every store credit code generated applies to one employee/customer. Coupons cannot be set on a store level (but this feature will be available soon).
Step 4: Generate store credit codes by going to the Coupons tab and clicking Generate Codes > Generate New Codes.
Step 5: Review all your store credit codes and remaining balances in the Coupon tab.
Step 6: Want your store credit to be used in combination with other coupons or discounts? Go to Dashboard > Discounts > Coupons > Behavior > Coupon combination.
