Common questions

Can I set the app to give out the points only after the customer has completed all the steps to follow me on social media?
Unfortunately no, this is a limitation of social media platforms. These platforms block access from any third-party reading data on social media accounts. Like other loyalty apps, we have to work off the honor system, meaning we must assume that the user will complete the action upon going to the profile since these platforms do not allow anybody to see this information. In our experience, the vast majority of customers do follow through on these actions, especially as our app makes it so easy by bringing them directly to your social profiles.
