With this activity rule, your customers can earn points by creating a new account and then visiting your store for the first time.
In order to set this activity rule, please follow the instructions below:
Go to Activity Rules
Click on Add Rule
Click on the Create Rule button in the New Customer section.
In the Name section, name the Activity Rule.
For Customer Facing Label, describe the activity rule with a brief explanation on how points can be earned.
For Base Points, input the amount of points a customer gets once the conditions of this activity rule are met.
Auto Approval Days can be set if you wish to give yourself time to approve customers' loyalty points upon completing activity rules. If you do not manually approve the points yourself during the interval you set (in days), after it passes, the points will automatically be assigned to the customers' accounts. Put "0" into this field if you want the points to be assigned to customer accounts immediately.
Click the checkbox for Enable Activity Interval Per Customer if you want to limit how many times a customer can complete this activity rule per given interval of time (days, weeks, months, years, or lifetime).
For Notification, you can input a message customers will get when they get their points.
For Rule Status, set the activity rule as either Active or Paused.
When you are finished, scroll back up and hit the Save button. Now you're done!
Now let’s talk about use cases. In other words, what kinds of situations would this activity rule prove useful for you, as the merchant?
The main one is exposure. By awarding points upon sign up, you can introduce your customers to your store’s products, new launches, and so on, on the front end. Afterwards, they can purchase, if they choose to do so.
Please note that it is essential for a customer to have an account and be logged into it on your store for them to be able to take advantage of this. Our loyalty application will not be able to track general visitors, as it will not know the account to assign points to.
