Loyalty programs allow you to reward customers for their purchases or other actions by adding points to their user profiles or to cards that they can share with other people.
Loyalty programs can be used across multiple campaigns and different Applications, as long as the loyalty feature is active for a specific campaign.
After you enable this feature, you can use the loyalty effects available in the Rule Builder.
You can set rules to choose which customer actions are rewarded with points and how you allow customers to spend these points. For example, customers might exchange points for discounts, free items, or store credit.
Loyalty points are granted when the customer session is closed.
Loyalty programs can also be used as counters. For example, you can use a loyalty program to count the number of purchases made by a customer.
Your loyalty program can be as granular as you wish by enabling the subledger feature during the program creation. When enabled, customers can have multiple balances within the same program, each tied to different entities.
The Loyalty page of your account allows you to view, create, and edit your loyalty programs. You can define user access to this page and to each loyalty program in your account.

You can create a loyalty program in one of the following environments:

Loyalty programs from a given environment can only be connected to Applications from the same environment. For example, if a loyalty program is created in the sandbox environment, it cannot be accessed by an Application in the live environment.
