All users can have Store Credit Balance and reuse to order from the store!
Admin can give Store Credit also and control it!
You can ask your customer to refund his money to Credit Card or ((you can add for him in Store Credit))
This idea is declined because its functionality can be achieved via the stanard Reward Points add-on.

This would make life much easier. Refunding customers on their credit card costs money and messes with the books.
The shipping fee in my website is estimated shipping fee. I will refund the partial of the shipping fee to my client when the actual shipping fee is lower than the estimated shipping fee.
Besides, all the items in my website are pre-ordered. After the customer have paid for the order, I will process the order and during the ordering process, the item may be out of stock. So that I also need to refund the money of out of stock to my client.
I am eager to have a Credit System in cs-cart.
The credit balance system can add or reduce credit as the reward points system.
credit system should also integrate with order modification (add/remove items), product returns, check out, refund / withdraw of money, etc.
I think the whole order system should be made of balance system with either credit or debt.
Example : order creation > debt which can be fullfilled after by any kind of payment.
Refund > Credit to customer client.
