Reward options

Example Special

For our example, we want our "Munchy Monday" special to:

  • Be available for everyone at all of our locations.

  • Active every day.

  • Auto-apply to those who meet the purchase requirements.

  • Apply one time in a single transaction.

To do this, we’ll do the following:

  1. Name our special and choose the "Buy Something Get Rewarded" option.

  2. Under "Eligible Customer," we will select "Everyone."

  3. For "Participating Locations," we will choose ALL LOCATIONS (CURRENT AND FUTURE).

  4. Leave "Timeframe" as is so that this special is always available.

  5. For "Additional Settings:"

    • Leave the code required section set to "no, special auto-applies."

    • Set this to apply one time per transaction.

    • Leave the "combines with" box unchecked.

  6. Check the special details to the right to verify selections, then choose "Next" at the top or bottom of the page.

For our special, we want anyone who purchases an "edible" product to receive the reward. To do this, under "Transaction includes," we will choose the following:

  • Chose: "Edible" from the categories listed on the left

  • Select "+ Add" to the right of "special applies to all Edibles."

  • Click the "Next" button.

  • This will direct to the "Customer receives" page of manage specials.

  2. Type in 50%. Note that if you create a special for 100% off, the price of the eligible product will change to $0.01.

  3. On the left, choose "Edibles," then select "Special Applies to all Edibles."

  4. Once selected, verify your special details on the screen to the right:

  5. Choose "Save & Make Active." Your special will now be available in your specials list and active for customers.

    • "Save as Inactive" will save the special, but it won't be available for customers.

    • "Cancel" will cancel all changes, and you’ll be returned to the main page.
