With this activity rule, your customers can earn points by signing up for your business's SMS.

In order to set this activity rule, please follow the instructions below:

  1. Go to Activity Rules

  2. Click on Add Rule and click Create Rule next to the Subscribe to SMS 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. 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.

  7. Restrict Customers is optional to complete. You can add customer tags to deny certain subsets of your customer base from taking advantage of this reward (ex: New Customers, Bronze VIP Customers, etc.)

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

  9. 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?

Similar to the Newsletter rule, you can use this rule to keep your customers informed about special events in your store. In doing this, you can benefit from potentially faster engagement for your loyalty program, as your customers will always been in the loop whenever new product launches, deals, sales, and so on, happen.
