What is Emarsys Loyalty?
Emarsys Loyalty is a Platform Add-on. It creates the most personalized loyalty experience. It’s designed especially for Emarsys customers and provides one of the fastest solutions to onboard, and easiest to operate. It ensures maximum lifetime value and higher ROI.
Emarsys Loyalty treats each customer individually, tracking their behavior, context and purchases to present an exclusive experience, and creating genuine connections. And can be managed by you, the marketer, without assistance from IT.
How does it work?
Emarsys Loyalty has three main elements.
1. Your Emarsys Loyalty account
An intuitive interface in your Emarsys account allows you to set up and manage your loyalty program, including tiers, actions, rewards, a dashboard, and more.
2. The Loyalty Wallet
We provide a simple pre-built Loyalty Portal for mobile and desktop e-commerce websites which requires minimal IT skills to set up. The Loyalty Wallet is customizable via the Emarsys Loyalty account and appears as a sidebar widget on your website, where customers can view their balance, activity, and earn and redeem points for gifts and other rewards. For more information, see Installing the Loyalty Wallet.
Alternatively, you can use our Loyalty API to create your own loyalty portal and website integration from scratch (see below).
There are three scenarios to choose from when it comes to the technical implementation
This option is suitable if you are happy to use the Wallet with only basic customization capabilities, and requires only a website admin to install the commands.
We also provide an API for full integration of the loyalty portal into your website.
This option is suitable if you want to customize the Wallet fully unify user and loyalty profiles, for example, and requires that you have the requisite technical resources at hand.
You can use the JS commands to set up the loyalty portal and Wallet, but use API calls for specific purposes, for example to sign up new registrations automatically on the registration form.

Why should I be using Emarsys Loyalty ?
The number one goal for every business is to increase customer lifetime value. The best way to get there is by growing the number of loyal customers - ideally without sacrificing margins. Loyal customers are your most valuable asset: their love of the brand makes them spend more with you, resulting in brand advocates who want to tell the world about you and help you grow your customer base.
Classic loyalty solutions are standalone products, meaning that they’re disconnected from your marketing platform. You might also lose the ability to act upon ongoing marketing activities in real-time, and the chance to engage with your customers in the most relevant way.
True 1-to-1 personalization
Emarsys Loyalty treats each customer individually, tracking their behavior, context, and purchases to present an exclusive experience, and creating genuine connections. As a part of the Customer Data Platform, the solution takes part in the marketing experience and boosts each marketing tactic with an added layer of personalization.
Full CRM visibility
Having full CRM data visibility enables Emarsys Loyalty to deliver specific actions to drive non-members to join the club, and pre-distribute customers into tiers based on spend from the beginning of implementing Emarsys Loyalty.
You can also collect more data on customers by rewarding them for completing their personal profile (e.g. adding their gender, address, favorite color, etc.).
Seamless customer experience
As this solution was designed especially for Emarsys customers, its preset admin module provides one of the fastest solutions to onboard, and easiest to operate. Emarsys Loyalty provides a fully integrated Loyalty wallet, enabling easy omnichannel communication and an unlimited number of actions to communicate to customers. Our smart blocks and personalization tokens auto-populate based on the customer and can be easily dragged and dropped into all of your communication channels.
Loyalty & Tactics
Made for both your Loyalty members and non-members, all of the Emarsys turnkey tactics are already integrated with Loyalty to maximize customer lifetime value and membership growth, in a personal and context-aware manner.
Varying reward types
Drive loyalty without sacrificing margins: Instead of only rewarding customers with vouchers, you can offer exclusive experiences. Show your appreciation with exclusive offers, tier upgrades, and premium status.
