FAQ

Q: What’s the difference between “Admin Funds” and “Virtual Funds”?

In “Admin Funds”, the site admin has to load credits to their own account in order to give credit line to other customers. In case if there is no enough credits in your account, you won’t be able to give a credit line to the customers.

In “Virtual Funds”, site admin doesn’t need to load credits to their account. A Credit line can be given to customers.

Q: How to style the bill statement?

It is not possible to style the bill statement.

Q: Refunds are not credited to the customer account. Why?

Updating the status to “Refunded” won’t credit the refund amount to the customer account. Follow the below steps while processing the refund to credit the refund amount directly to the customer’s account.

  • Edit the order that you want to refund.

  • Click the “Refund” button.

  • Update the refundable product quantity.

  • Click the “Refund $x.xx via Credits” button.

Q: Why bill is not generated from the plugin?

Bill will be generated automatically using cron. Please cross check whether cron is running properly on your site. If the cron is not running, then that is the reason why the bill is not generating.

Q: Is it possible to get the application form submitted with the phone number field as mandatory instead of the email address field?

We are getting customer details using the Email address and hence it is not possible to disable the email address field and it is not possible to give the email address field as optional.

Q: How to generate bill every week instead of every month?

Weekly billing is not possible. Only monthly billing is possible.

Q: I need to set the repayment date exactly after specific days of purchasing date. Is that possible?

It is not possible. Only a specific date of the month can be set as a repayment date.
