Just a few of the ideas we have had of how you can use ePoints in your business straight away and I am sure you can think of many more
How to set up ePoints
ePoints will allow you to add 'points' onto a members profile which can then be used to purchase products.
For example a member can purchase 1000 ePoint. This would be worth £10. Then if you purchase a product which costs 100 ePoints this would leave me with 900 ePoints to use going forward.
To setup ePoints you will go to the settings
Then to Products
Now setup a new product
Please select product type as ePoints
Then enter the price for the ePoints.
1 ePoint is equivalent to 1p - this cannot be changed.
If you want to setup the price to £10, this will give the customer 1000 ePoints.
Under advanced options you can see how many ePoints will be given.
Now you will go to the settings, products, click through your products
Under the advanced options tab please select all product to be purchasable with ePoint.
A member can now add in ePoints then use this to purchase products. Below is an example where a member purchased 1000 ePoints, and purchased a product costing £1 with the points.
You can only use this feature with GoCardless and Stripe payment methods
Using ePoints can become a very effective way of giving your customers rewards which actually cost your business much less but have a higher value to your customers.
ePoints to buy protein shakes will have a much higher customer value when compared to the actual cost price of a protein shake to the club.
