Card or cardless programs

Virtual cards

Virtual cards encode the member ID into a smartphone app. During a transaction your customers then present the app to the POS operator for scanning, or scan it themselves using a self-service scanner or kiosk.

Simplicity can integrate with your existing app or supply a generic Simplicity Loyalty App customisd for your program (optional cost). The Simplicity Loyalty App provides a convenient way for consumers to register for the program, maintain their details, review recent transactions and redeem. Virtual cards can be emailed to your member or simply reside in the app.

Cardless loyalty programs

With cardless loyalty programs we need an alternative identifier such email address, mobile phone number or payment card number. Your customer registers this ID when they enrol in the program, and supply it when completing a transaction.

Card based programs

Simplicity works equally well with traditional card based programs. Store Cards pre printed with number barcode or QR code You can generate card numbers on the fly for card printing, and send them by post or offer them to customers at POS to maximise registrations.
