This article is applicable only for Shopify Merchants

This article teaches how to enable the Buy Using Points button for customers so that they can buy using their coins directly from the products page.

Go to your Loyalty Program page, click on Features in the side-bar and then in the On Site Redemption section you can find the Buy Using Points Button.

As first step enable buy using points button feature by toggling the status button on that page. After enabling you will see the below view.

How it works?

The working of Buy Using Points button is similar to Buy Now button on your product description page. When the buyer is logged-in into the website, they will see the view shown below in the screenshot, once they click on the button, it will use those many points to create a discount code, apply the discount code automatically in background and open the shopify checkout page.

Here a product of 1599 can be bought using 1559 + 800 points. Similarly you can add this button too on your product description page for your customers to buy using points

Setting the offer

Now on nector dashboard, switch to the Redemption Rules tab and define the offer based on which the points to $ conversion will happen. To define the offer, under Offer Settings, click on the Add button, and choose an offer as per your business needs.

For ex: Based on the business logic, a business can create an offer, where 1 point = $1, or 100 points = $10 etc.

After the offer has been setup, you will need to add the Buy Using Points app block in your live theme's product description page.

By default the Buy Using Points will be shown even if buyer is logged-out, and when the buyer click on it, it will take take them to your website's login page. To hide the Buy Using Points when the buyer is logged-out simply check the Hide button if customer is not logged in. After all the changes click on the Update button to save the changes.
