Managing customers' credit

If your website enables customers to pay with their credit, they can pay without credit card or other payment methods. If you run multiple websites on Kentico, customers’ credit can be either separate for each site or shared for all sites together.

You have a full control over the credit balance. That means, you can add or deduct money from their credit account. Alternatively, orders can automatically deduct money from the customer’s account. The system holds the credit balance in the main currency.

Changing a customer’s credit balance

You both add and deduct money with a credit event:

  1. Open the Customers application.

    If you do not know how, see Using the Kentico interface.

  2. Edit () the desired customer.

    You can edit a customer by clicking the Edit icon (). Choose the Edit icon that is on the same line as the name of the customer whose attributes you want to change.
