Revindex Storefront 5.2 - Rewards, Vouchers and Cart Abandonment

Here's a little reward for your Thanksgiving! Reward your customers with points that they redeem for purchases to encourage them to shop more. The latest Revindex Storefront 5.2 now supports a powerful loyalty points program. You can customize how many points to give based on the amount of the order, individual products or exclude products from points program altogether. Customers can redeem these points for purchases on your store.

That's not all. Storefront can now help recover abandoned cart and convert them to sales. Let the system automatically email customers who abandoned their cart after a fixed amount of time or you could even send them a link over chat. 

If you sell gift certificates, gift cards or vouchers, you'll be happy to know the Storefront can now automatically generate the vouchers and email to the customer after checkout. You don't even need to lift a finger. Best of all, if you participate in group deals like Groupon, LivingSocial, etc., you can import these voucher codes into your system and customers will be able to redeem them on checkout!
