Blacklist products with a specific product tag from your loyalty program with Shopify
Product tag blacklisting allows you to exclude certain products from your loyalty program so that customers can't earn points for purchasing that product(s).
By default, your customers can earn points for purchasing any product.
📝 Note: With Shopify, there are two ways you can blacklist products. You can blacklist by Product Collection or by Product Tag. If you would like to blacklist by Product Collection, please follow these instructions.

How it works – Your customers' experience
If the customer's purchase includes a product that is in the blacklisted product list the customer will not earn points for that particular product.
In your Marsello admin, under the customer's profile, this will show as a line item in the points calculation.
📝 Note: If the customer has other products that are not a part of the blacklisted products, the customer can still earn points for those products.
