Introducing Rewards Social 2.0
- Introducing Rewards Social 2.0
We're proud to introduce the new Rewards Social 2.0, bundled with MageRewards v184.108.40.206 and up, for Magento Community and Enterprise merchants.
Rewards Social 2.0 is a complete overhaul of the existing social reward functions within our MageRewards extension and we just know you are going to find it easier to use and customize.
Our main objectives with Rewards Social 2.0 was to give our merchants and development partners more control with the social rewarding features of MageRewards. This new development will support a wider range of popular social network extensions and allow front-end developers to integrate MageRewards with customized social widgets.
The shiny new functions that our team have developed has enabled increased customization, control and configuration for social rewards. But what are these new features?
This will allow merchants and developers to customize the front-end of their shop more extensively to create a unique social rewarding experience.
We have cleaned up the old social configuration tabs by combining all settings into one tab which simplifies the configuration process for all social rewarding.
New limiting settings allow you to have global control over your reward social functions, including daily, monthly, yearly and lifetime rewards. Keeping things simple has allowed these features to be easier to understand and manage whilst enhancing the old functionality.
Rewards Social 2.0 is only available in MageRewards v220.127.116.11 and up.
If you're upgrading from a lower version of MageRewards, you'll be given the option to start using Rewards Social 2.0. If you're installing MageRewards for the first time, you'll automatically be using the new 2.0 system
The quick answer is absolutely nothing! All your old social rewarding rules should work exactly the same as before, however it will pay to test these out to ensure your customers are getting rewarded correctly.
We do encourage that you generally allocate smaller monetary rewards towards social actions as social actions are sometimes abused.
Social rules will be available under the Rewards > Reward Rules > Earning Rules > Customer Behavior menu item, just as before.
To upgrade to Rewards Social 2.0, you will need to update your version of our MageRewards extension in your store to v18.104.22.168 and up, to download the latest version of MageRewards, click here.
