Liquid Barcodes can help you create a point based program where customers earn points, check balance and spend points.
Build a points based program where the customers earn points by purchasing specific products like fuel, carwash or food. You can also design the program so that customers earn points on any purchase, but gets extra/double/triple points by buying selected products.
Design a rewards program where the customer earn points per $ spend. Make it simple to understand what the conversion from $ spend to points is and what the value of a point is – and how this can be used. If the customer earn points on total amount spent, make sure to exclude the amount spent on “banned” products (e.g. tobacco, alcohol etc) which will not give points.
You can also design a rewards program where the customer earn points per visit.
Or design a rewards program where the customer earn points by activity. The activities can be things like prepaid card top-up, purchases, in-app activity, completing profile surveys or playing games.

We recommend using points as currency in your shop in app. This gives you a wide variety of spending options, while maintaining a high degree of margin control on point spending.
Points can also be the basis for allocating customers to status levels.
Liquid Barcodes also support sending points to another app user or donating points to charity organisations that you choose.
Donating points to charity can be marketed in multiple ways. For example 1 points can be worth €1 and the consumer can donate 10 points – €10. A possible alternative is that the retailer always matches the donations of their customers.
