Store Credit is a great feature goes with Magento Enterprise Edition. It helps store owner to engage with their customers, adds a flexible payment method, supports them interact with their friends, enables a good way to resolve refund and keeps them happy with some credit bonus for next shopping. Business owners run their eCommerce website on Magento Enterprise edition took a lot of benefits from this built in extension. Some months ago, I had a chance to work on an interesting Magento project to migrate their system from Magento Enterprise 188.8.131.52 to Magento Community 184.108.40.206 for saving around $18K per year of Magento EE license fee. Of course, they wanted to keep all available features including customer balance (Name of store credit module on Magento Enterprise) There are a lot Magento community extensions provider those provide similar store credit features, I may list some of them here in case you need one for your own store.
