Rewards Points Virtuemart 2.x
The new Virtuemart Reward Points extension manage reward points and loyalties in Joomla 2.5 with Virtuemart 2.
Customers earn points from Virtuemart orders and/or product points and many activities. Many bonuses, for order quantity, frequency and support to earn more points during birthday time or 4 promotional periods, with daily exclusion. Points can be managed and changed to chips, easy and intuitive to use. Chips are handled in a module - so you can place in any page you need including the cart. Chips are coupon code, so you can even handle them as coupons. Chips can be re-converted to points to let customers to manage their piggy-bank, or simply put in the cart, to discount new orders. Chips works like a charm!
When a customer makes a new order, he can earn new points. Calculations are based to order amount or the sum of product points. For order amount, you can handle 5 ratios to calculate the percentage from amount, based on 5 amount-thresholds. When changed, you can set 4 chips colors based on values. You can email activities with a new, very easy to use, multi-language email functionality.
The Virtuemart Reward Points extension works as stand-alone extension, and it is also designed to be combined with the AlphaUserPoints component. We builded a robust hidden migrator from/to alphaPoints for those who want to obtain the best: rewarding friends, handling medals and combining Joomla activities to Virtuemart activities.
A second simple way to use the reward points is to activate the "auto-chip" from the configuration page.
Your customer earn new points that are immediately converted to a new chip, following your conversion rules. All new points earned will delete old chips and add their values with the new activity in a new chip, fresh, with new expiring date.
This is the easy to use - immediate user point manager of the Virtuemart Reward Points
No piggy headers, no reconvert-to-piggy-points option. You have just to enable the "auto-chips" options.
Customers will always see... just one big chip, incremental, ready to use in the cart.
And this is the professional user point manager of the Virtuemart Reward Points when AlphaUserPoints is installed.
The points prediction function predicts to the customers the points the are going to earn. And because it calculate both "sure points" then "raffle points" and bonuses for orders, it really leads them to buy.
A new shopping experience is possible with the new points prediction module for reward points virtuemart 2, because it involves raffles and bonuses. You can now configure the reward points program using much more bonuses and raffles "random" points to promote to purchase in your webstore.
Emails, promotional-time bonuses, chips colors schema, and many more new featured. Overall it's a platform now, and it will be easier for us to build new plugins as many of you desire.
We provided so many new functions - as you can see below in the config documentation - and some of those, as the new emailing support, are so much improved than before. The new Virtuemart Reward Points extension supports the new Credit Points System plugin, an intelligent "pay per points" method that is able to hide other payment methods when buying regular products with points, and hide itself when buying credit points! So you can FINALLY! use regular Virtuemart Payment (as paypal, authorize etc) to buy points (not as it's done in alphaUserPoints or nordmograph extensions) and having them hidden when a customer buy your regular product! The credit points plugin, sold separately, can even win new reward points bonus or not, and it's able to confirm/delete orders automatically when a customer pays. If also handle its own emails.
Customers can change points into chips. Chips are coupon codes. So you can use them both together.
Click on the chip (you can even publish the reward points module in the cart) to discount the chip in the cart. The chip will be available until the cart purchasing is confirmed.
