About Loyalty Programs

A loyalty program is a marketing strategy that shops can use to encourage their shoppers to purchase and continue purchasing items from their shop.

With CommentSold, your registered shoppers can earn account credit with every purchase that they can then apply to a future purchase.

How a Loyalty Program Benefits Your Shop

  • Incentivize shoppers to keep purchasing from your shop.
  • Registered shoppers can use loyalty credit as store credit on future purchases.

How the Loyalty Program Works

When you enable your loyalty program, you'll set a base percentage that registered shoppers can earn on every purchase. This includes the purchase of gift cards, waitlist authorized items, and comment charge purchases.

CommentSold will multiply each order’s subtotal by that percentage after it deducts:

  • Sales tax
  • Shipping costs
  • Applied coupons or discounts (with the exception of secondary offers)
  • Any portion of the payment made with account credits or gift cards

These amounts do not count toward earning loyalty credit.

CommentSold will retract earned loyalty credit on items a shopper returns to your shop. If you choose to refund the order back to the card used for the purchase, then CommentSold will display the amount of credit to be retracted. 

If you choose to refund the customer using store credit, there is no need to retract loyalty credit. Shoppers will keep their original loyalty credits; however, they will not earn any additional loyalty credits when they pay with store credit. Shoppers can only earn loyalty credits with each new payment.
