What is Smile.io?
Smile.io is one of the world’s most trusted loyalty programs built to reward your top customers for joining, engaging, and sharing in your brand community.
Why Smile.io + Tapcart?
75% of customers are more likely to buy a product if they are able to earn rewards for their purchase. Integrating Smile.io into your Tapcart Dashboard will allow shoppers to earn points and claim rewards they can then use later in the app!
By utilizing this integration, you can allocate points for valuable customer actions like placing an order or writing a product review, customers can earn statuses through an exclusive VIP program or offer redemption options in-app for a fixed amount or percentage-based discount!
