How it works - your customers' experience
On the customer’s loyalty profile, under the Earn Tab, they will see the ability to earn points for ‘Product Reviews’.
The customer can write a review on the product page via the BigCommerce Product Reviews feature, once it is submitted, they will earn points for this action.
📝 Note: In order to match the product review to the customer, they will need to enter their email address when leaving a review. If the customer doesn't leave their email address they will not earn points for this action.
If a customer chooses to leave an additional review, they will only receive points the number of times you have specified in your settings.
📝 Note: If you have your Earned Points Email turned on, your customer will also automatically be notified by email. This email will let them know how many loyalty points they have earned, their new loyalty points balance, and how many points away they are from their next reward.
