With this activity rule, your customers can earn points by purchasing any product or products from a Shopify collection you have in your store.

To set up, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Go to the Activity Rules section.

  2. Click on Create Rule

  3. In the Name section, name the Activity Rule.

  4. For Customer Facing Label, describe the activity rule with a brief explanation on how points can be earned.

  5. For Customer Facing Icon, provide the URL of an icon or image, or leave it blank to use the rule-based global icon from the widget settings or the default image.

  6. For Base Points, input the amount of points a customer gets once the conditions of this activity rule are met.

    1. In Points Based On to the right, choose to base the points customers can earn on Purchase, Quantity, or per $1.

    2. Use the toggles underneath to provide points to guest customers, that is customers who don't have accounts in your store, or to disable points for products on sale, if you'd like.

  7. Auto Approval Days can be set if you wish to give yourself time to approve customers' loyalty points upon completing activity rules.

    1. 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.

    2. Leave 0 into this field if you want the points to be assigned to customer accounts immediately.

  8. 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).

  9. In the Collections section, click the Choose Collections button to reveal a pop-up menu displaying your store's collections for you to choose from.

  10. The next two sections, Allowances and Restrictions, are optional to complete. You can add customer tags (obtainable from the Customers section of your Shopify Admin), order tags, product tags, etc. to deny certain subsets of your customer base from taking advantage of this activity rule (ex: New Customers, Wholesale Customers, etc.).

  11. For Notification, you can input a message customers will get when they get their points

  12. Status, set the activity rule as either Active or Paused.

When you are finished, scroll back up and hit the Save button.

View and Test Your Activity Rules

Go to your storefront and bring up the loyalty widget.

Click on the Ways to Earn section to view the rules you have configured. They will be listed with the point earning parameters you have set.

Earn test points by fulfilling some of these rules.

Use Cases

The use cases for this rule are quite similar to that of Buying a Specific Product. The first application worth noting is new collection launches. If you introduce a new collection of products into your store, you may want to direct your customers’ attention to it to help drive sales, and this activity rule can help with that.

The other is a targeted sales strategy. If there were a specific collection of products in your store that you wanted to sell out more quickly than others, this rule, again, will come in handy.
