Understanding the benefits of a loyalty API
If you’re not sure what a loyalty API is, let us fill you in.
What is loyalty API?
It’s a technology that allows businesses to integrate a loyalty program into their existing systems, making it as easy as possible to reward customers.
From a technical perspective, a loyalty API is a set of rules that allow different computer systems to communicate and exchange data. Typically, a loyalty API works by sending and receiving requests and responses between different software applications.
For example: when a customer interacts with a business, such as making a purchase (or any other kind of activity), the loyalty API collects information about the interaction, such as the customer’s details, the date and time of the transaction, and the amount spent.
Based on the rules set by the business, this data is then analysed to determine whether the customer is eligible for a reward. If the customer is eligible, the loyalty API will trigger the reward and send it to the customer's account.
So - why should you consider using a loyalty API?
Let’s explore some of the benefits of a loyalty API
Enhanced customer experience
By integrating a loyalty API within your existing systems, you’re making it super easy for your customers to earn and redeem rewards. An effortless customer experience leads to higher levels of engagement and retention. Plus, a loyalty API allows you to personalise the experience to each customer, which leads to ultimate satisfaction and loyalty.
Improved operational efficiency
When you use a loyalty API, you’re streamlining your operations. Instead of manually tracking rewards and redemptions, the API does it all for you. This frees up time and resources in your team, allowing you to focus on other aspects of your business.
Increased data insights
A loyalty API allows you to gather data about your customer’s behaviour and preferences. You can take any interaction (“customer event”) and feed it into your loyalty program. For example, you can use data about previous purchases to tailor product recommendations to better meet your customers needs.
How API integrations can power a loyalty program without limits
Now that we’ve covered some of the benefits, let’s look at a real example of a loyalty API in action.
Biscuit: using White Label Loyalty’s Loyalty API to power a unique rewards program for pet owners.
Biscuit is a rewards program designed to encourage healthy choices for dogs via gamification and rewards. Users earn points called ‘biscuits’ for completing activities that prioritise their pet’s health and wellbeing.
White Label Loyalty provided a flexible loyalty API to power Biscuit’s app, which helps Biscuit save time and money on in-house development. After users complete a challenge or task successfully, the loyalty API identifies those activities as 'events' and applies pre-set rules to reward them.
In just 9 months since launching in March 2022, Biscuit has accumulated over 50,000 registered users and a 4.6-star rating. Easy-to-use features, engaging gamified challenges, and frictionless rewards make Biscuit a successful rewards program.
