Add Merge Tags to your Points Earned Loyalty Automation

Notify your customers of points they have earned via the Points Earned (email) automation, including personalized merge tags.

Updated over a week ago

There are several ways to earn points, and they will vary depending on one of the most recent points-earning action the member made before receiving the email. By default, your Points Earned Loyalty Automation will use the merge tag "Points given reason" to automatically fill in what reason a member has earned points for.

Edit your Points given reason in your Points Earned Loyalty Automation

โš ๏ธImportant: The Earned Points Automation is currently syncing the original merge tag of ##{{shop_name}} from the loyalty notification. You will need to remove the preset ##{{store_name}} merge tag from the automation and replace it with the one from the drop-down menu to ensure the Automation will send as expected.
To access the ##{{store_name}} merge tag:

  • double-click into the text box where the merge tag will live. This will open up a secondary email editor.

  • click on the drop-down menu next to Merge Tag and select the ##{{store_name}} merge tag
