Earning points by using a QR code is suitable for offline businesses where the staff member (merchant) can use a mobile device with a QR scanner to scan the code on a customer's device.
How does it work
To test this, you can use the Restaurant Demo.
- The customer creates an account. This can be done by clicking on the "My Points" menu item and then the "Or create a new account" button. On the demo you can also log in with the credentials [email protected] / welcome123.
- The customer clicks the "Earn Points" menu item and then the "QR Code" button.
- A QR code shows which can be scanned by a staff member (merchant). Any QR code scanner app can be used for this, it's a link to a secured page in the staff area. In the demo you can log in as a staff member with [email protected] / welcome123. Or you can create a new staff member in the admin dashboard. A form like below shows where the staff member can enter an amount of points and optionally segments to credit the customer.
