Set up a Handoff Reward & Buffer


In this guide, we will show you how to set up rewards for the users to redeem against the points they earned through activities and challenges. 

Users can exchange points for rewards. As the institution administrator, you choose the rewards that you want to show on the app.

There are two types of reward:

• Merchant handoff – you state the amount of stock and user shows their

phone to the merchant to redeeming the reward.

• Discount code – you provide a code for each reward available. Each code corresponds to one redeemable reward. Users are shown the code and can either present this to merchant or use to redeem online.

You can set up a limit on the number of times a reward can be redeemed using the ‘reward buffer’ and tags.

Users are shown rewards if they are enabled and;

• Available

• Coming soon

• Out of stock

Note: Expired rewards are not shown on the app
