About activation of special bonus points – If you use promotional bonus points that are activated some time after the purchase, you can set up a notification to the customer that the bonus points are activated.
About expiration of special bonus points – If you use promotional bonus points that have a certain validity period, you can set up a customer’s notification that the bonus points will “burn out” soon. You can choose the notification method, for how many days before the expiration of the promotional period, a notification must come, the time when the notification will be sent, and the corresponding time zone. Please note that if you use several loyalty programs, a notification will be sent from each loyalty program to each customer, even if he bought only in one of them. This is due to the fact that all bonus points in the account are common and are valid in all loyalty programs.
About transactions – This option determines whether the customer will be sent and, if so, in what way, a notification to the customer about changes in the bonus account after the purchase. This option also determines whether notifications will be sent and in what way when “manually” accruing bonus points.

ATTENTION. If you set the number higher than 0, this could potentially lead to the redemption of bonus points of another customer by mistake or intentionally. Be careful with this option. Use it when you have an extra customer identification by your POS, or a cost of a possible loss is not very high, or a customer is asked a security question.
Payment by bonus points – This option controls whether it is possible to pay a check with bonus points in part or only in full. The customer can pay the check partially with bonus points, partially with money; partial payment with rounding to the whole is possible; or you can set up only full payment of the check with bonus points.
