Yes you can transfer your customer database over, along with their points balance. All you need to do is upload a CSV file and Collect works its magic to transfer points across. And if you need a hand, our Customer Success Experts are always ready to help.

How does Collect Loyalty work across brick-and-mortar and eCommerce?

Collect Loyalty is the only loyalty solution that offers a seamless experience in-store and online. Meaning customers can collect points at both your brick-and-mortar store and online, and then redeem their rewards at either your brick-and-mortar store or online. When they redeem in-store, their points balance is automatically adjusted right away, so they can no longer redeem it online, and vice versa. And, you can encourage customers to shop online or in-store by specifying where/how the reward must be redeemed.

Does Collect Loyalty work across multiple store sites and online?

Yes, when you connect your POS account, all of your store sites will be connected to your Collect account. So you can run Collect Loyalty across all your stores and control them from a centralized Collect account. To enable Apple Wallet in all your stores, all you need to do is enter in all of your store addresses.

Is it my own loyalty program?

Yes, you’re in control. Call it what you want; rewards program, loyalty program, VIP club. It’s up to you. Upload your logo, choose the rewards to suit your business, and share your new loyalty program with your customers. Because it’s your own loyalty program customers can only redeem your rewards with the points they earn at your store.

How does Collect Loyalty prevent the abuse of coupon codes?

To avoid the abuse of coupons, all coupons are unique to the customer and to the reward they have unlocked. This means it can only be used once. When they redeem a reward in-store, the coupon code can no longer be redeemed online, and vice versa.

Do I need hardware?

No, Collect Loyalty works through your existing point-of-sale so you don’t need anything extra. You may wish to use a 2D scanner to make reward redemption quicker, but this is not necessary as you can simply enter in the coupon code.
