Setting Up Point Rules

In order to setup MageRewards, you will need to configure how your customers will earn and spend points. We use Magento's rule system to create  point rules for earning and spending points. 

How Customers Earn Points: Point Earning Rules

Earning rules are points rules that govern how your customers earn points. They are broken into three types: 

Catalog Earning Rules

These earning rules award points based on products.

Shopping Cart Earning Rules

These earning rules award points based on a customer's shopping cart.

Customer Behavior Rule

These earning rules award points based on a customer's actions. Notice how these rules are not tied to a purchase like the other two. These rules are used to award points for things such as voting in a poll, signing up for a newsletter, and other customer actions.

How Customers Spend Points: Point Spending Rules

Spending rulesare points rulesthat govern how your customers spend points. They are broken into two types: 

Catalog Spending Rules

These spending rules are applied by any combination of product attributes.

Note: In order for catalog spending rules to operate properly, you must have enable cron-jobs (or scheduled tasks) in Magento. For a tutorial on how to set up cron-jobs/scheduled tasks, please see: Setup Cron Jobs or Scheduled Tasks.

Shopping Cart Spending Rules

These spending rules are applied by any combination of shopping cart attributes.
