Import points transfers¶
If you have a customer list that you want to add points within your Loyalty Program, you can enter it into a Points transfer XML file and then import it in your Open Loyalty Admin.
Importing a XML file will create a points transfer for each customer, identified by:
- email address
- loyalty card number
- phone number
At least one, of the listed above value, must be provided to identify the customer and create points transfer for him.
in XML file you can provide only customer loyalty card number – if this number is unique and allow to identify him.
If not, provide e-mail or phone number for better authentication.
If all informations are provided, platform uses them to assign your loyalty program participant with points transfer based on hard-coded priorities assigned to this value. Priorities can’t be changed.
Priorities are as follows:
- Customer ID
- Customer e-mail address
- Customer Loyalty card number
- Customer phone number
If any of this four listed value will not give a result an error message occurred.
Mechanism of matching the customer with points transfer basing on priorities is the same like in Identification factors description (number 1 has the highest priority).
if XML file includes customer ID and email address, customer ID is used for matching before the email address.
If there will be no clear result, email is checked, and so on.
