Ways customers can earn loyalty points in Marsello
1. Making a purchase
Customers earn points every time they make a purchase at your store, encouraging them to shop with you. Choose how many points you want to reward your customers for every $ they spend. This is the only required point-earning action.
2. Creating an account
Welcome new customers and kick-start their earnings with points when they create a new customer account. Customers can only get rewarded once for this action.
📝 Note: Customers who already have a store account with your store will not have the 'Create an account' reward available to them.
3. Completing their profile
Reward customers points for giving you their personal details. Build an information-rich customer database, including gender, birthday, and mobile number. This is required if you want to reward customers on their birthday and is a great way to increase your SMS database. Customers can only get rewarded once for this action.
4. Celebrating their birthday
Build a loyal relationship with your customers and really personalize their point earning. Automatically send them points to say Happy Birthday and delight them on their special day.
📝 Note: You can set the minimum member enrolment period to ensure that customers must have an account for x amount of months (minimum 1 month) before being able to earn birthday points. This is a fraud prevention measure to prevent customers from creating accounts and claiming birthday points immediately.
