Online reward redemption with Shopify eCommerce
In this article:
How customers spend points to redeem your rewards
When a customer has earned enough points, they can spend them to redeem a reward of their choice.
To redeem a reward and get their unique reward discount code, the customer simply clicks on the reward of their choice, then clicks Redeem.
As soon as a reward is redeemed, the customers points balance is adjusted, removing the points cost. A unique discount code is generated and displayed, ready for them to use.
The customer can use their discount code now, or save it for later. They can view their unused code at any time in your loyalty widget and if you have your Reward Discount Email turned on, they will be able to find it in their emails as well. Once they use the code, it will be removed from their account.
