7 Reasons to choose AltoQ Exchange

  1. More exchange scenarios and flexibility than our competitors. Exchange for replacement products of lesser, equal or greater value than the returned products. If the replacement products are less than the returned products the merchant can choose to return the unused value to the original payment method or as a store credit.

  2. Exchange fulfilled or unfulfilled products. This is useful where a customer has made a mistake on their order and you are now able to correct the order within Shopify before dispatch.

  3. Line by line control if products are restocked to inventory, unlike core Shopify returns which is an all in or all out approach.

  4. Beware apps or advice to use sales discounts to apply or issue store credit. Standard accounting practice deems the issue of store credit and gift cards as a deferred liability. In contrast, a sales discount is an expense and therefore negatively affects your income reporting, product profit margin and profit and loss report. You don't want to make key business decision on inaccurate sales figures or have the tax man on your back.

  5. Your customers can joyfully redeem store credit and take advantage of a promo code at checkout because our app doesn't rely on discount codes.

  6. The calculations for complex exchanges are automatically calculated by AltoQ Exchange to minimize human error and save staff processing time. Of course, merchants have the opportunity to review all calculations before finalizing any exchange transactions.

  7. Built within the Shopify framework for ease of use and peace of mind. There is no need for merchants or customers to visit a third party website to manage exchanges or store credit. Your store sales and customer details are kept securely within the Shopify platform.

We used this app to create an exchange of item for our customer who had changed their mind on colour. It was really easy to use and quick. It certainly has saved us a huge amount of time and fuss.
