Reward points Rate Topic   - - - - -

 

Posted 19 October 2012 - 02:53 AM #1

I want to make sure that I am doing this correctly:

I want to enable reward points. In my mind, I want to configure this so that they get one reward point for every dollar spent. As far as using reward points, I want to configure the system so that they need 30 reward points for every dollar that the item (in question) is worth. For example, if a user wants to purchase a $10 item, then the user would need 300 reward points. How would I enable this?

From the user manual, I know that I need to go into Administration -> Add-ons -> reward points. I want to set the "Points Exchange Rate" to 30 points... But I am not sure what that means. Does that mean that for every dollar they spend, they get 30 reward points? or does that mean that they need 30 reward points for every dollar that an item costs.

Also, ONce I set this in the reward points section, do I need to do anything else? IE, do I need to go into each item and set something?

Thanks in advance for any help/advice/suggestion,
Frank

Hello,

How Customer Earn Points:

1. In Products -> Reward Points, You can set those points customer group vise.
- Absolute Points -> give that points to each product regardless of order amount.
- Percentage -> give % of total products amount, if your total products cost is 700 and you give here 50 then 350 points will be given to customer on placing order.
2. You can overwrite those settings Account, Category and Product vise from their respective tabs.
(For Your Case : "I want to configure this so that they get one reward point for every dollar spent." Put Products -> Reward Points -> Percentage -> 100)

How Customer Use Points:

1. If you want to globally set "Price-Points" ration, set it in Add-on -> Reward Points -> settings
- In "Points Exchange Rate" whatever amount you put is equal to $1.
- You have to set "Allow payment by points" checkbox for that product in Admin, Products -> Specific Product -> "Reward Points" Tab.

2. If you want to set Product price and points ratio manually for each product.
- Then set "Override global PER" checkbox for that product and specify number of points equel to that product's price in given textbox for that product in Admin, Products -> Specific Product -> "Reward Points" Tab.
(For Your Case : "I want to configure the system so that they need 30 reward points for every dollar that the item" Put Points Exchange Rate -> 30)

Hope it helps :grin:
