How customers receive points and redeem rewards 

Your customers can begin to collect and redeem loyalty points once they create or log into their customer account on your eCom store.

To see the total number of points they have and the progress towards the available rewards, they can select Rewards in their customer account.

Shows the rewards page from the customer account screen. The customer has earned one reward and has almost earned a second one.

Your customers are informed how many points they receive when they are in the cart and in checkout, as well as the available rewards they can redeem.

Troubleshooting syncing issues

In rare cases, customer loyalty details are not synced to eCom. Normally, new customer accounts, issuing point or rewards are synced automatically to the Loyalty Manager. When an issue occurs with this automatic process, the system continues to attempt syncing for up to 45 minutes. You can manually restart the syncing process if you notice issues:

  1. Select Customers from Home in your eCom admin.
  2. Select a customer's name.
  3. Select Sync to Loyalty.
