SCHEME OPTIONS and SuggestionsIn the first instance we recommend using the 5% system. This option is set up as follows:-For every £1.00 spent you award 5 pointsi.e. £50 = 250 Points £75 = 375 Points £100 = 500 Points
After the TransactionOnce the transaction is completed thepoints are written to the smart chip and thecustomer is given back the Smart Card.The customer can verify how many pointsthere are on the card at any time during orafter the transaction by simply insertingthe card.
Redeeming the points At some point the customer may wish to ‘CASH IN’ his points towards purchases.The redemption value should be initially set as follows:- 100 Points = £ 1.00 500 Points = £ 5.00 1000 Points = £ 10.00 2000 Points = £ 20.00
TAKING POINTS OFF THE CARDThe terminal has the option to take points off the card using the ‘Subtract Points’ option.You can either hand over a Gift Voucher to the value of the points or simply deduct the value from the transaction.
EFFECT OF RedeemingCustomer has spent £ 100 to achieve a £5gift voucher.That £5 will now need to be spent back inthe centre on goods or sevices you sell.The effect cost to you for this transactionwill be less than £ 2.50 based on Cost ofsales.
Cost to you if Discount usedIf the same transaction had been madeusing the discount structure that costwould be £ 100 X 10% = £10.00The £10.00 leaves your shop with noguarantee of it being spent with you in thefuture. Therefore the saving to your cashflow using the loyalty Solution is £7.50 orbased on a turnover of £ 10,000 per weekthe saving is £ 750.00 per week

Questions and AnswersQ. What if the Customer loses his/her cardA. In the Standalone system the card should be treated as a ‘Gift Card’ or ‘Cash Card’. If the customer loses the card it is like losing cash and the reverse of the card will have a disclaimer.If on the other hand you utilise the software you can keep a record of the time, Date and Points gained at each visit.
Terms and ConditionsThis Example is used on the back of Gift CardsThe ‘Company’ cannot replace or reimburse the value of the points of your card if it is Lost, Stolen or Damaged. Please look after this valuable card carefully and treat it just like cash. To check your points balance or to add more points hand your card over at the checkout.Your Customer can bank their points in at any time in return for a ‘Gift Voucher’ or against Purchases. You should encourage banking wherever possible at the Point of Sale.
What About ReturnsMost shops these days offer Credit Notes against returned or unsuitable goods.As a General Rule If they are a Loyalty Card holder you should not give points out for Credit Note Purchases.
What if Customer forgets CardIf the Customer forgets their card you should validate the Sales Receipt and insert your test card to calculate points and write on the goods receipt.The Customer simply brings in the receipt next time and you add the points to the card and sign the receipt with points given.
How Many Customers can I have in the system• The Standalone system is limitless in terms of card holders 100 - 500,000+• The Audited system is again limitless, however you will need to download your transactions on a regular basis i.e. the terminal holds about 1000 transactions i.e. loyalty card holder visits.
