## How it works - your customers' experience

Every time a customer makes a purchase they will earn your chosen number of loyalty points per $ spent.

For example:

- 1 Point for every $1 spent, e.g. $40 = 40 points
- 2 Points for every $1 spent, e.g. $40 = 80 points
- 5 Points for every $1 spent, e.g. $40 = 200 points

If you have your **Earned Points Email** notification turned on, your loyalty member will also receive an email notifying them of how many points they earned for their purchase.

Additionally, the next time they log in to your loyalty widget, they will see their new loyalty point balance and all rewards available.
