Earning rules

When you create a new rule, you can reward customers not only for the basic actions like completing an order or newsletter subscription but also for more complex behavior:

Get X Points for each $Y spent. Using this action, you can stimulate customers to spend more and increase your average check. Moreover, you can use this rule to promote specific items and reward customers with points when they buy particular products only. For example, if a customer spends $50 on t-shirts, they will get 10 points.

Get X points after Y days of inactivity. If you want to involve inactive users and stimulate them to make some purchases in your store, you can give them some reward points.

Also, this extension allows you to add points that never expire.

Highlight point on the frontend
