Installing & Configuring your Loyalty Program App
- Under your Manage Business settings, select the Apps tab to Install the Loyalty Program app and configure your settings.
- Enter the Earning Points settings by deciding the number of loyalty points earned for each dollar spent on both services and products.
Ex. For every $1 spent on services or products, a client earns 5 points—which
equals to 5% in points value. If your business averages $100 in service value,
then a client would earn 500 points per visit.
- Enter the Redeeming Points by deciding the number of points you would like to make equivalent to a $1.00 discount that can be redeemed on products or services.
Ex. For every 100 points earned, a client can redeem $1 on a future purchase. If
a client accumulates 500 points total, that would be equivalent to a $5
