Here's what we're covering:
How to manually cancel a reward when a customer redeems it by accident.
Currently it's not possible to mark a reward as 'used' or delete it from the customers' profile once it has been issued. The only way for the code to stop showing as active would be for it to be used in an order. The workaround here would either be to delete the code in Shopify > Discounts - this will mean that the code will stay in the customers' profile with an 'Issued' status. Or you can take the code and use it in a fake order so the coupon code gets marked as 'used' in the customers' profile!
This guide will walk you through how to manually cancel a redeemed reward. Please note that this will not remove the discount code from your customer's reward panel, it will just deactivate the code so your customer will no longer be able to use it.
Deactivate the discount code
1. Go to Customers in your Smile Admin - then open the profile for the customer that you are working with.
2. Click the 'Rewards' tab in this customer's profile
3 .Copy the code that you would like to deactivate
4. Search the coupon code in your eCommerce platform
- If you are on Shopify - look up the discount code in Shopify > Discounts
- If you are on BigCommerce - look up the discount code in BigCommerce > Marketing > Coupon Codes
5. Deactivate the code
- If you are on Shopify - check off the code that you would like to deactivate, click 'Actions' > 'Disable discount codes'
- If you are on BigCommerce - check off the code that you would like to deactivate - then click the 'Trash Can' icon
Add points back to the customer's account
Once the code has been deactivated - the customer will no longer be able to use it in a purchase!
You can now re-award the points that was spent on the reward to the customer.
1. Locate the customer in the Customers section of your Smile Admin.
2. Click Adjust balance on the customer's profile. This is located under the Points heading on the right-hand side.
3. In the Points adjustment field, enter the number of points that your customer spent on the reward. You can also add internal note, customer-facing notes, or both, to help you keep track of why the adjustment was.
4. Click Adjust points to update the customer's points balance.
