While blacklisting product categories allow you to exclude certain products from your loyalty program so that customers can't earn points for purchasing those products. By default, all customers and product categories are included in your loyalty program.

How it works – Your customers' experience

When your customer makes an order, Marsello automatically checks your order rewarding settings. If the order contains a product that has been blacklisted, the customer will not earn loyalty points for purchasing that product.


If the customer has other products in their order that aren't excluded from your loyalty program, they can earn points for purchasing those products.
