Reward Exchange Rates

Reward Exchange Rates determine the amount of points that are earned based on the order amount, as well as the amount of monetary credit that is available when points are redeemed.


Manage Reward Exchange Rates

Different exchange rates can be applied to different websites and different customer groups. If multiple exchange rates from different websites and customer groups apply to the same customer, the following rules of priority apply:

  • Exchange Rate Priority

When converting currency to points, the amount of points cannot be divided. Any currency remainder is rounded down. For example, if $2.00 converts to 10 points, points will be earned in groups of $2.00. Therefore, a $7.00 order would earn 30 points, and the remaining $1.00 would be rounded down. The monetary amount of the order is defined as the amount which the merchant receives, or the grand total minus shipping, tax, discounts, store credit, and gift cards. The points will be earned the moment when there are no non-invoiced items in the order (all items are either paid or canceled). If an Admin user does not want to allow customers to earn Reward Points for canceled orders, those points can be manually deducted from the Manage Customers page.
