If you haven't already downloaded the bLoyal app for your integration (Clover, Magento, or Shopify), please follow the link above and click the Subscribe button. Optionally you may consider adding on our Order Ahead Plugin for curbside/in-store pickup orders. Within a few minutes, you will receive an email with a link to verify your account and set it up.
Whether ordering Core Edition from our site or via the bLoyal app you downloaded for your integration, you will first need to complete the initial setup wizard and activate your device/web store (note: this is for both POS and web integrations. The below screenshot is an example from the bLoyal Plugin for Shopify activation wizard):
- Click the Activate Device button (as shown in the above example).
- You will then be presented with the login/signup prompt. Click Create Account (or Login if you have already done this step prior and are re-installing the bLoyal plugin or adding a new one):
- Fill out your company and desired admin account details and credentials. Please note: The Company Login Domain field does not accept spaces or special characters. It will be used to log into Director, your new web-based backoffice interface and CRM system.
- After entering your details and clicking Continue, you’ll see that your account is processing. During this time, your bLoyal account is being created automatically. This process will take roughly 5-10 minutes. You’ll be logged in and will receive an email once your account has finished processing. You may wait while your account is being created, or you may close the page or exit the app and return to it later and then simply login using the Company Login Domain, Username, and Password you had entered in prior.
- Once your account has finished provisioning, you’ll be presented with the following success message:
- Click Login. The next step will be provisioning your POS or web store “device” entry in your bLoyal Director account. Devices represent web stores, POS systems, etc. and are used to integrate them with bLoyal. To start this process, simply click on the Provision button:
- Next, you’ll be prompted to enter your store’s details. After filling them in, click the Create Store button to create your store entry in bLoyal for integration:
- Once your store entry has been created, you’ll be presented with the following success message and will be returned to your app or Apps page in MyShopify/Magento:
Once you get logged into bLoyal Director, you may access your Core Edition Setup Wizard anytime under Setup => Settings => Setup Wizard. There, you may go through and configure your loyalty program as desired.
If you had selected the welcome coupon option in your loyalty program configuration within the Setup Wizard, new customers moving forward who make a purchase of any amount or sign up online using your configured MyRewards Web App (optional) should be automatically awarded the welcome coupon. Regardless, here’s how to sign up a customer at the POS (and ensure they are awarded a coupon if you had elected for the welcome coupon option):
- Click the bLoyal button: Quick Signup.
- Enter in the customer’s information and save. They will then be awarded a welcome coupon automatically.
Here’s how customers can get the welcome coupon by signing up online:
- Direct customer to go to: https://bloyal.me/[URL of your choosing]. This is shown and can be modified in the MyRewards App section of the Setup Wizard.
- Click Create Account.
- Enter in required/optional info (as you have configured it in the Setup Wizard) and click Continue.
In order for customers to redeem their welcome coupons, here are the steps at the POS:
- Click the bLoyal button: Find Customer.
- Search for and select the customer.
- Optional: Click View Customer and expand the Coupons section to confirm the customer has the coupon.
- Add the item(s) to the transaction. This step is interchangeable with setting the customer to the transaction in Steps 1 & 2; adding items or the customer to the transaction can be done in any order.
- Find and Apply the Coupon.
- The welcome coupon's discount—as you had previously configured in the Setup Wizard in Director—should then apply when you go to the Tender screen at the POS.
Also, here’s a more comprehensive overview on the bLoyal POS Snippets outlined above:
In order for customers to redeem coupons in your web store (Magento or Shopify), they may simply enter the coupon's code (default: JOIN, although you may customize this coupon code) as they check out.
Director is the control center for your bLoyal services. Here, you have access to the following modules:
