Is it possible to issue a store credit instead of a refund according to the new rules of Shopify?
Our client asks us to provide them a store credit service so instead of refunding money to their customers they want to give their customers store credit to use for shopping for another product.
According to Shopify rules, refunds should use the same payment method that was used to pay for the order. We can't issue a refund to a different card or bank account.
Does It mean we can not use Store Credit instead refund?
Thanks for your solution, I tested it but it's not working.
When we cancel a fulfilled order we have two options: Refund or Refund later.
which means we can not cancel without refunding.
Thanks for reaching out and this is a great question!
Shopify does not yet support store credit. What I would suggest to your client here is to issue a free gift cards on the amount of the refund. We have a help tutorial here on issuing gift cards to customers.
If that is not a suitable option, then they could use some third party apps listed below;
With that being said, I can understand why this could be beneficial for your client. I would be more than happy to feed this back up to our developers for future consideration. While it’s not possible at the moment, maybe we will see this option in the future, so I appreciate your feedback on this.

If we issued a gift card to cover the store credit provided, how do we remove the balance owed to the customer on the order? By selecting "refund later" it doesn't refund the money but it shows we still owe them money, even after a gift card has been issued.
Yes, this is possible. I see many of my customers use gift cards as a way to give a refund. In Shopify, gift cards and store credit are very similar. With a third party app you can give gift cards and add value to them the way you would with store credit. This is something we are soon adding to my app iziGift. That said, at the moment you can still use the app to issue gift cards as a return.
Hope that helps.
