Trade-in portal status

From here you can enable or disable the trade-in app on your store front. This is customer facing only and will not will not affect the admin side of the app. One trade-in methods must be enabled in order to enable the trade-in portal.

Trade-in methods

You can select the trade-in methods you want to offer on your store.
  • For products with online order history - this allows your customers to trade-in products they have purchased through your Shopify store and have a digital purchase history
  • For products that require registration - this allows your customers to trade-in products they have purchased outside of your Shopify store. This may be in your brick-and-mortar stores, from a wholesale partner, or second hand through channels like Ebay.

Global trade-in eligibility settings

Minimum trade-in age

This allows you to set a minimum age (in days) that a product has to be before it can be traded-in. This applies only to products with an online order history. We recommend that the minimum age aligns with your current returns policy to prevent customers from trading in product that they should return. You can override this in the Trade-in profile settings.

Minimum trade-in value

This allows to you to set a minimum value of credit a customer must reach before they can complete a trade-in. If you want to offset the cost of trade-in shipping, we recommend setting a minimum trade-in value equivalent to 10 or more. That way, the trade-in value is always higher than the shipping cost.
If you don't want to set a minimum trade-in value, enter 0 into the field.
​

Limit number of item per trade-in

Here you can set a maximum number of products that a customer can add to a single trade-in order. By default, this is disabled.
​

Discount code prefix

You can customise the prefix of the discount codes generated by the app. We recommend you use something easily identifiable. By default this will be set to TERN-. Discount codes are generated in the following format: PREFIX-A1B2-C3D4-E5F6
