Common questions

Can my customers redeem my online rewards in-store?
Only your POS rewards are redeemable in-store. To edit these rewards visit Ways to Redeem.

Why aren't my other ways to redeem visible in the POS app?
This is expected, only your POS ways to redeem are available on the Shopify POS app.

How do I know if a customer used their points on a POS order?
On the Shopify order, you'll see a line item under "discounts" with the points a customer used toward their purchase.
On the customer's profile, under activity, you'll see POS: Redeemed a reward - reward title. If an order was refunded you'll see POS: Points refunded - reward title.

Do customer points get refunded if I remove the discount from the cart, or clear the customer from the cart?
Yes, the points will automatically be refunded back into their account if you clear the customer or the cart.

The customer's point balance isn't being pulled in correctly.
This may be because the customer has multiple emails – you can search for the customer by email address to ensure you're adding the correct customer profile.
