Reason Codes

This article describes the Reason Codes that can be added and configured for your Lambda Store.


Introduction to Reason Codes

Reason codes can be used to help organize transactions between those that do and do not require approval from certain administrative users on your Store site. Once reason codes are created, they can be applied to orders and credit memos generated in the store. 

When configuring reason codes for your store, you can determine:

  • The order type that your code is applicable to: Orders or Credit Memos.
  • The code name and description.
  • Whether or not the code requires approval from a particular Store Role. 
  • The maximum threshold required for an approval code to trigger. For example, if this value is set to 50, then transactions that cost below $50 will automatically be approved while transactions that cost above $50 will require approval.


If you would like to edit your Reason Code settings, please contact the Lambda Support team.
