3. Click to open the drop-down, then click the Product Tag that you would like to exclude from your loyalty program

How it works – Your customers' experience
If the customer's purchase includes a product that is in the blacklisted category, 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 category, the customer can still earn points for those products.
