Transactional earning points rules

Transactional actions mean that they are related to orders in the store and aimed to increase them by offering different types of incentives to the buyers. The users may purchase and get points for every unit of currency spent, they may buy some product or products from specific collections and spent some amount on the store to get a reward.

These include such actions on the store as:

Place order

Encourage members to buy more by giving them points per their spending. Please be mindful that the rewarding type for this action can only be set up as points. Specify the number of points to give for some amount of spending. For example, you may reward 10 points for every $1 spent and etc.

Excluding Tagged Products from Orders

If a customer buys several products with the excluded product, then we will deduct its cost. The buyer will receive points only for those products that participate in the reward program.

Punch card

Reward members who placed a certain amount of orders in your store. In “order count” select the quantity of placed orders and choose the order’s minimum price:

For Punch card, it’s possible to set only Points as a rewarding type. Choose how many points you want to give to your members in the Points amount field and customize the delay of issuing points if needed.

Excluding Tagged Products from Orders

If the minimum order amount (without excluded products) is suitable for the conditions, then the excluded product will not consider when checking the total cost of the order. And the points will be given.

The cost of excluded products will be deducted from the order. There is 1 BUT, we will include in the order price tax and delivery of excluded products, as they relate to the order as a whole.

Spend X to get Y

Set a spending goal and cheer members when they will achieve it. Choose what spent amount you want to reward:

NOTE: The goal spent amount is accumulative, meaning that once a customer reaches the goal spent amount (i.e. purchases items for $100 or more), he will get the reward (i.e. 20 points).

But if you want to give customers 1 point for every $1 spent, please set up the Place Order rule.

Excluding Tagged Products from Orders

If a product is excluded it will not consider in the order.

Buy a certain product or collection and get X points or a reward

This action allows you to encourage your customers to buy promoted products or collections by offering points, discounts, or gift cards. Choose the desired products or collections:

Excluding Tagged Products from Orders

If an admin puts the excluded product into this earning rule, the points will be given anyway.

Note: This rule work is that customers will get one reward for purchasing any one of the products from a specified collection. The goal of this rule is to encourage customers to purchase a certain product or any product from a certain collection. So once the goal is reached, the customer will receive a reward (one reward).

Innate actions to reward

Innate actions mean the ones that the users can complete in any Shopify store such as signing up, subscribing to the newsletter, having a birthday if specified. We will list those actions below so you can follow to the admin panel and start setting up:

Create an account

This rule rewards for account creation and when the users already have created one before installing Growave, you may reward them for past actions. The setup of this action is the same as the rest of the rules and you may easily follow this guide.

NOTION: Please, kindly be noted that to qualify to receive the reward for creating an account in our Rewards system, the users need to verify their email address from the Rewards tab or a page. For example, the verification link looks like this and you may verify your email address from the notification:

Here is how the notification looks:

You may set up the notification from this section. If you would like to bypass email verification and let your customers receive rewards for the sign-up without it, you may contact our team at support@growave.io or click on the chat-box below with a request and our team will gladly assist you.

Reward on birthday

Give your members a special gift for their birthday. You may set up the rule as the "Create an account" rule. Here you may check how to get users' birthdays.

An important thing about this action is that if your members change their dates of birth, they will earn birthday points or discounts for the updated date only next year. It will help you to avoid fraud by customers. Also, the customers can add their birth date from their profiles or by clicking on the rule on the Rewards tab. You may find customers with specified birthdates from this section - https://growave.io/admin/members.

Also, there's an option to multiply points for placing an order on a birthday, i.e. if the regular user gets 1 point for every $1 spent, on his birthday, the customer will get 2 points for every $1 spent (or more, depending on the multiplier you set up).

Subscribe to the newsletter

The users can be rewarded for subscribing to the news on the store. This way they can receive the notifications from your shop. They can be asked to subscribe upon creating an account from the Register page or mark the subscription later from the Edit profile page where they can add other personal information:
