Delayed accrual and promised points
Number of days in which points for a transaction actually get credited to the customer's current points. The points for a transaction are initially credited to the customer’s account as promised points. After the prescribed number of days, the points get credited to the current points after the delayed accrual period (configured by the org).
For example, if an apparel store has a return policy of seven days, and a customer buys a shirt and gets 20 points on this purchase. The points are reflected as promised points in the customer's account right after the purchase. These points are actually credited to the current account after seven days. However, if the customer returns the shirt (in the return period), the promised points will be reverted and current points will not be updated.
Promised points are not applicable for products with a no return policy.
