Loop Installation


The Loop Returns app exists as a Shopify application, and while Loop often integrates seamlessly, this article will cover some of the common installation questions.

In this article:

  • Installation Message
  • Shopify Prefixes & Tags 
  • FAQ

Installation Message

Since Loop is not a public app available on Shopify's App Store, you will receive a message (below), when installing Loop. This is a trusted message and you may proceed with the installation.

Shopify Prefixes & Tags

Loop applies a variety of prefixes and tags to orders within Shopify. Below is an over of what those look like. 


EXC - exchange order prefix that is added to every exchange order created in Shopify, customized through Loop Admin > Settings > General

Shopify Tags:

Gift Card - applied to original orders that received a Store Credit Gift Card return outcome

Refund - applied to original orders that received a Refund return outcome

LE:Exchange - applied to original orders that received an Exchange return outcome

#XXXX - applied to EXC prefix exchange orders, XXXX is original order number

refund_fee:XXXX - fees by product type, allows shipping fees to vary by product type. 

Note: The ability to customize Shopify tags, from Loop, is not yet available


I attempted to install Loop, but Shopify would not allow me to complete the setup. This may occur if your Shopify account does not have Administrative access. To complete the setup, you will need access to install apps in Shopify. If you have Admin access and are still unable to complete the install, contact support@loopreturns.com or your Onboarding Manager. 

Will I need a developer involved to complete this integration? No. Loop setups can be completed without development assistance. Shop now On-Store will require some developer assistance (this can generally be completed in about 2 hours).
