1. About Credit

The credit feature allows you to reward your customers with credit, and refund your customers with a credit instead of cash. Your customers can spend the collected credit during their next purchase.

2. Credit setting

💡 Tips : There are 2 ways to create Reward Credit promotion tool:

2.1 : Method 1 - Popular discounts > [$10 credit for every $100 spent]

Step 1 : Go to EasyStore Admin > Discounts > Add discount



Step 2 : In "**Popular discounts**" section > select [$10 credit for every $100 spent].

💡 Tips : Promotion tools in this "Popular discounts" section are also known as the "shortcuts" / ready templates where most of the settings are pre-set for quicker setups.



Step 3 : Insert the title of your promotion.



💡Tips : Credit promotion title will only appear on the shopping cart if the credit promotion is applicable with voucher code.

💡Tips: You may refer to the Summary on the right _ to review_ the promotion that you are creating.



Step 4 : Here, you may set how your customers will be able to get the promotion.



Step 5 : What item(s) customers spend on to get the store credit.



Step 6 : Create the Store Credit.



💡 Tips : Set max usage per order :
For example on the scenario of $10 credit for every $100 spent, if the max usage per order is set as " 2 " (times) , this means that if customer purchased with a total of $200 in a single order / checkout, thus $20 credit will be given to customer. If set as "1" (time), only $10 credit will be given even though the total spent is $200.

Step 7 : Apply "Extra condition" (optional)





Step 8 : Save and Done!



💡 Tips : Once saved, you will see the created promotion in EasyStore Admin > Discounts



💡 Tips : Click into the created promotion to view the settings. Click "Edit" if you wish to make any changes / realize there is an error in the settings.
