Upload Credit Using CSV
This system allows merchants to import credit amount updates from a CSV/XLS file. This is especially useful from the Magento 2 system.
Importing the credit system from a CSV is easy to do. Once the Buyer Credit Module is installed, simply log in to your admin, go to Credit Management ->, and click Upload Credit Using CSV.
Once the above page has loaded choose CSV/XLS file from your system then upload and wait for the total credit to import as per the below snapshot-
This can be useful in situations where we need to process a large volume of credits and bypass the default functionality. Its purpose is to define individual credit amounts to create.
Using the Buyer Credit module you can import data through the CSV file. The merchants can import the Bulk data using a single click. Use the Execution Log in the Magento backend to identify and fail imports.
When the import is complete, you will see an import summary as per the below snapshot-
A total of four credits are to import here in this screenshot, but when the import is complete, we get a total of two credits imported. As there is no existing data of the customer for a website in the CSV file.
Assign Credit to a Particular Customer
The admin can also assign credit amount to a particular customer by navigating through Customer > All Customer and then clicking on the Edit option under the Action column for a particular customer as per the below snapshot –
In the customer information, the admin can assign a Credit Limit to the customer in the credit information tab as per the below snapshot.
Admin needs to mark the checkbox to use the particular credit limit.
And uncheck the checkbox to use customer group credit which is set in the module configuration by the admin. Under here, the admin can view Used Credit, Remaining Credit, and Customer’s Amount. The admin is also able to see all transaction information for the credit amount that the customer gets like – Transaction ID, Transaction Date, Transaction Type(debit or credit), Transaction Currency, Transaction Amount, and Status.
Note – Assign credit limit change at front-end if we change credit limit from group credit limit to particular credit limit.
For example – 1. Admin assigns a 500 USD credit limit to a group of customers and if the customer uses 20 USD then 480 USD will be the credit balance to that particular customer. The customer account will get updated at the front end and the display credit balance is 480 USD, the amount to pay is 20 USD and the Credit limit is 500 USD.
2. Admin assigns a 200 USD credit limit to a group of customers and if the customer uses 200 USD then Admin assigns a 150 USD credit limit to that particular customer. The customer account will be updated at the front end and display the credit balance ( – 50 USD) and the amount to pay is 200 USD.
