Features and Benefits

Allocations (Dollars and Percentages)

Allocation Dollars:
Allocation dollars are utilized by organizations to help control spending within cost centers, employees and departments. They are also called budget bucks, reward dollars, and allowances.
Here’s how allocation dollars work:
Allocation dollars are tied to username and password and can be applied towards purchases within one or more eStores within the customer’s ACES site. Allocations can be utilized on both PO (Purchase Order) and credit card sites and the balance will always appear on each page within ACES.
If the allocated dollar amount is exceeded, there are three options available:
1. The order routes for manager approval.
2. The user is alerted to adjust the order prior to it going through.
3. The user can continue on and pay for the excess amount on their credit card

Allocations can be set to expire on a specific date, carry over a balance, or can be made available as a one-time use.
Reports are available for customers to review allocation balances by requesting it from their ACES project coordinator, who can also add allocation dollars at any time.

Discounts on ACES

The discount feature allows customers to apply a discount to merchandise on an ACES site. Discounts are often used for employee recognition, birthday or holiday gifts, customer appreciation programs, online ordering incentive, etc. Please note that discounts are only offered as percentages, not specific dollar amounts.
Discounts can be set up:

  • With or without a required discount code

  • With or without an expiration date

  • As a one-time or multiple use

e-Gift Codes

eGift codes are available in two options: regular eGift codes to go against the total dollar amount of your order or free freight eGift codes that are entered at checkout to negate the dollar amount for freight only.
Here’s how eGift codes work (2 options): 1. Regular eGift Code. The user enters the eGift code at the point of check out and the amount of the eGift code is applied to the order. If the order total exceeds the amount available, the user will be prompted to enter credit card information for the remaining balance. If the eGift code balance is greater than the order total, the user can apply the eGift code toward future purchases, unless the eGift code is set up as a one-time use. Please note that eGift codes are only available in dollar amounts, not percentages.
2. Free Freight eGift Code. These codes work very similar to the regular eGift code except these codes are used specifically for free shipping. Like the other codes, these are entered at the point of check out and it deducts the cost of shipping for the corresponding order.
An eGift Code is treated as a payment on an order/freight and is available for either one-time use, multiple uses, with an expiration date, or a combination of these options. For regular eGift codes, American’s ACES system automatically and randomly assigns eGift codes in corresponding values. For free freight eGift codes, American can either generate a code(s) for one-time use or the customer can choose it for multiple use. (i.e. Freefreight2016)
In either case, once the eGift code has been redeemed, the customer is billed for the amount redeemed by the end user (no summary bill option). Both options are only available on credit card sites and the two codes can be combined on one purchase. (i.e. $50 off of the item and free shipping)

Loyalty Points

Points are utilized by organizations for incentives and loyalty programs. Points are treated as a payment on an order. They are available for one-time us, multiple uses or can be set to expire at a given date.
