loyalty card scheme

loyalty card scheme

1 0 0

I run an independent running shoe store in the UK and want to set up a loyalty scheme. I want to be able to give physical loyalty cards to my customers that can be scanned at POS and will convert a % of their purchase into points which can be redeemed after (for example) 3 purchases. It would also need to be redeemable on our online store.


Is there such an app that would do this and the cards as well? Obviously cost is a factor as we are only a small business, but I feel a professional loyalty scheme will benefit us.


I’d love some recommendations and/or ways of achieving this based on your experience.


Many thanks.

Hi @Kazzad 

This is Amelia at PageFly - Shopify Advanced Page Builder app.



Absolutely! There are several options for setting up a loyalty program with physical cards and online integration for your running shoe store in the UK, considering both cost-effectiveness and professionalism. Here are some recommendations:

Loyalty Apps with Physical Cards:

Several Shopify apps offer loyalty programs with physical cards and online redemption capabilities. Here are a few popular choices with varying pricing structures:

  • LoyaltyLion: This app offers a free plan with basic features like points for purchases and tiered rewards. Paid plans unlock features like custom cards, online redemption, and marketing automation.
  • Smile.io: Another popular option with a free plan that includes points for purchases and basic reporting. Paid plans offer additional features like custom cards, tiered rewards, and gamification elements.

Benefits of these Apps:

  • Cost-effective: Freemium options allow you to start basic loyalty programs without upfront investment.
  • Easy to set up: These apps integrate with Shopify and typically have user-friendly interfaces for managing your program.
  • Customization: Paid plans often offer custom card designs and program features to tailor the experience to your brand.
  • Online Integration: Seamless redemption process both in-store (through card scanning) and online.

Hoping my solution helps you solve your problem.
