How to set up the rewards?

Custom discount

There are two types of discounts - Fixed and Variable.

The Fixed Discount reward allows a customer to exchange points for a discount. You can put any amount you wish and the customer will get a discount off after redeeming the reward.

Also, you can choose if you want to apply the discount to all products, or selected collections. Add an inclusion tag, set the minimum purchase amount, and put the duration of the discount validity.

Variable discount

It allows your customers to easily redeem the needed number of points and use them more actively. This is how it looks and works for your customers:

You may set up a minimum or maximum points expendable:

Percentage discount

Percentage discount works as a usual discount. Just the specified percentage is off from customers' total order's cost for doing the earning action.

Free shipping

Let your customers redeem a 'Free shipping' discount for points they have earned for on-site activities. Please check the following article to get a detailed explanation of how to set the Free Shipping Spending rule.

Free product

This is a brand new feature that helps to redeem a free product for some amount of points. You may set up a discount name and click on the "Choose product" button to get started with the discount:

Then in the next pop-up, you may type the product name, and select the variant:

You may add the title, put the points price, and the discount value:

Gift card

Now Growave allows creating Gift cards in exchange for points. Learn how to create and set up the reward in this guide.

By the way, customers see these rewards on a separate page or the tab:

The available rewards will have a discount code that can be copied and applied at the checkout. And the ones, to redeem which customers don't have enough points, will have a call to action button like "Earn points". By clicking on them, customers will be redirected to the "Earn points" section.

More options

Each discount has More options settings that allow:

1. Applying to the entire order, or collections.

You are able to select certain products or collections on which the discount can be used.

2. Making the discount available only to users with a certain tag.

If you add the tag to the customer in Shopify's "Customers" section and add the same in the Rewards setting, then only these customers will be able to use the discount.

3. Requiring a minimum purchase.

Customers should make a purchase on the amount that you will set up in the settings and only after making a purchase for this amount they will be able to use the discount.

4. Defining discount expiration in days.

Set up after how many days the discount will be unavailable to use.

NOTE: The discount code that has already been redeemed, will not be disabled even if the spending rule is deleted or has altered eligibility. It will work according to the settings of the spending rule at the moment of redeeming.
