On Shopify POS is there a way we can see Store Credit/s issued to a customer. We might have more than 1 credit issued to a customer for different transactions and the customer might have used some of these.
Can I see this as a history on the POS iPad App?
Solved! Go to the solution
Nick here from Shopify.
Great question! Store credit isn’t tracked on each customer, but as a total on the store, which can be viewed in Analytics. You can also see this information in each order. So while you cannot track it per customer, you can per each order. I understand that is not completely ideal and might require some manual tracking, but it would be the only way right now.
Shopify has some more information on this in a help document here.
I will, however, submit this as a feature request for you on your behalf to our team, as I can really see how this would benefit your store while selling when using the POS.
Hope this helps!
All the best, Nick
Thanks for your reply and thanks again for putting forward my request as a feature request.
I'm running a project to replace our old till system with Shopify POS and at the moment this is one the biggest show stoppers. Issuing a store credit/credit note a customer for refund is most commonly used and a "must have" feature. Not having this feature has put the choice and implementation of Shopify POS on hold at our business.
I can see Shopify has implemented it however it is pointless if we can't track it back to the customer. There is no use of having a store credit if we can't track and use it for the original customer.
What's our alternative here please?
Thanks for getting back to me and explaining that in the detail you did. I will add this to the feature request as it helps show why this feature will make your business better and more efficient.
The best workaround at the moment would be what @LighthouseWeb mentioned.
Thank you again for replying with more context on this.
Thanks @LighthouseWeb for the alternative work around.
However I don't see Gift Card as an option on POS app when I try to refund a transaction. The only options I have are original payment method or Store Credit. Gift cards are enabled on POS app however physical gift cards are not.
Could you please let me know how did you do this?
@Nick - Could you suggest this please.
You can try it on a test account this is how to make it flow - But this was for a
Shopify POS REFUND with NO Recite
Issue a GIFT CARD
But you can apply it still to a Refund then Gift Card
Or For a REFEND on to GIFT CARD ACtual ONE
BUT I JUST SAW THIS after testing the above out
When You do a REFUND
- Now there is a SLIDDER that says REFUND BALANCE TO GIFT CARD
- But I hae yet to really try it out seems that you can ONLY EMAIL IT TO A CLIENT
Hope this works for you
@LighthouseWeb Thanks a lot for the detailed steps. I'll try these today.
Where can I see the SLIDDER that says REFUND BALANCE TO GIFT CARD
I can't see it on my POS and not on 'myadmin' section of the store on browser too.
I'm using POS app on iPad and I just checked, it appears to be most up to date.
Could you please help further.
Thanks again for your reply.
Unfortunately I don't have that option on my POS app. Please see screen attached.
@Nick Is there a different POS version that I'm using than one used by @LighthouseWeb
