When you receive a return from a customer with an exchange request, simply open the customer's original order within Shopify, click "Exchange with Exchange It" from the More Actions menu or search the order on the Exchange It homepage to start a new exchange process.
You'll be given the option to select the product(s) to return (and restock, if desired). Simply select the quantity of each item to be restocked and the relevant location. If you do not wish to restock any products, then leave the return quantity as zero or select “No Restock”.
Top tip: If you regularly use the same location, set it as the Default Restock Location on the Settings Page.
Once you are happy with the returned items from the original order, you can move on to the exchange order. Here you can use the product picker to add new products that will be sent to your customer. Because Exchange It does not include any billing, any products added here will be included at zero value ($0).
Top tip: If you have many products in your store, it’s much quicker to search for a specific item!
Exchange It automatically populates the original customer information including, customer name, phone, email, and shipping address. These can be edited if you need to send the new item to someone else.
If it is a POS order and no customer information is required, then select the “No Customer Information Required (POS Order)” checkbox.
If the product does not require any shipping address but you would like to include the customer information, then uncheck the “Include Shipping Address” checkbox. This is very useful for virtual products.
If you would like to add an order note to the exchange order, then this can be done using the text field on the right-hand side. For further information about order notes and tags, view the instructions on using the Settings Page.
When you are happy with all the information, press the “Place Exchange Order” button to complete the process. This will trigger the Exchange Summary that will give you an overview of the operations that have occurred and if there were any errors.
Then you can view the new order and simply process it using your normal order fulfilment method! No new funds will be collected for the even exchange and the app assumes free shipping.
