STEP 2: Now, you need to choose the reward type you want to share with people who scan your QR code. Also, choose the segment of customers who can redeem this reward.

If you want to acquire only new customers, then choose the “new customer only” option. But we recommend selecting the option for “new + existing customers." This will ensure all your new and old customers keep visiting you.


If you have activated a cashback loyalty, then you will not be able to give a rupee discount. However, if you have activated a visit-based or point-based loyalty, then you will get all the reward options as shown in the screen below.

Basically, whatever reward you give, be it loyalty points or any cashback will be added to your current type of loyalty once redeemed by the customers.
