Q: If my Ecwid orders also sync into my POS account, will this award double points for the same order?
A: No, we have implemented checks to prevent double point rewards for the same order. For instance, if an order is made on Ecwid, the customer will earn points for their online order. If this Ecwid order is synced into your POS account, they will not earn additional points and vice versa. This ensures that customers receive points only once for their order, maintaining fairness in the loyalty program.

By using this link, you can conveniently direct customers to your loyalty program and encourage their participation.

Currently, there is no workaround for this limitation, if there are any updates from Ecwid to allow this, we'll be sure to let you know once this is available.
