Loyalty Program Essentials: Accumulation Methods at a Glance

The core of your loyalty program is the ongoing accumulation method that rewards your customers for purchasing, and then keeps them coming back to redeem and purchase more. The method you choose should give value to your unique customers, while increasing repeat business and sales for you.

Please keep in mind that with Como Sense, all the methods are flexible and combinable. The examples here are based on our clients worldwide, but you can mix and match the perfect, unique solution for your business.
