Payments and Accounting
How long does it take for credits to appear?
We generally apply credits to accounts 30-days following the applicable transaction date. This time is necessary to account for cancelled orders, chargebacks, returned products or other related issues. The 180-day expiration date begins after the credits have been applied to your account.
What do Available, Pending, Used and Cancelled mean in relation to credits?
Available credit - The amount based on transactions that have been approved (completed). Available credits may be applied toward purchases or you can receive a check at the end of any month when the Rewards credit total comes to $300 or more.
Used credit - Amounts that have already been used for purchases or paid to the account holder with a check.
Pending credit - Transaction amounts that have been reported and are awaiting approval. Approval typically takes about 30 days and after this time, "pending" credits become "available" credits.
Cancelled credit - Orders that were not completed. You may see "cancelled credit" when a customer clicks on your Rewards link and places an order, but later returns or refuses the order. Your account is adjusted accordingly.
Why do I have an “Unusable Due to Limit” status in my Rewards account?
When you make over $600 per calendar year, we are required by law to acquire your tax information. Your Rewards will be released for use after you have submitted your tax information.
