Customer Success Story: How Sewing Studio Used ConnectPOS with Gift Card and Reward Points by Aheadworks

We always glad to hear how our solutions help e-commerce marketers from all over the globe successfully conduct their business. And today, we’ll bring you one great example.

Customer Success Story: How Sewing Studio Used ConnectPOS with Gift Card and Reward Points by Aheadworks

Sewing Studio, one of the largest sewing equipment sellers in the UK, looked for ways to effectively provide its services across all sales channels.

For better ecommerce performance, Sewing Studio moved its websites to Magento 2. Another challenge was finding a POS system that will work with Magento out of the box (instead of a less friendly dedicated solution). So, the choice fell on ConnectPOS.

Purchase Magento 2 Themes from our Partners and Take our Extensions with the 10% Discount

Magento is a functionality-rich ecommerce platform and, unarguably, is one of best choices for any online retailer.

Purchase Magento 2 Themes from our Partners and Take our Extensions with the 10% Discount

Still, rich and powerful selling and purchasing options provided by the platform need to be finalized and even enhanced with a high-quality theme.

A great theme is able to make the whole functionality scope properly provided to customers and, in fact, is a final touch for any Magento 2 store. There are a lot of ways to improve the look of your store. For example, you can create a custom theme, resort to free themes, or you can purchase a great theme for reasonable money and enjoy the quality.

The last option, apparently, is the most popular among Magento store owners, and, perhaps, one of the most reasonable solutions, as soon as theme providers have already resolved most of the important issues and offer you:

  • Well-thought usability and advanced UX experience;
  • Responsive and mobile-friendly template and layout;
  • Visually attractive design;
  • And extra valuable functionality.

So, other thing being equal, a reasonable decision about a Magento theme leads you to the themes that correspond to all the points above, including the scope of extra functions either added to the theme or provided by some Magento extensions compatible with this particular theme by default.

So, we are glad to announce that now, our Magento extensions are compatible with some great themes for Magento 2.

Aheadworks Theme Provider Partners

In order to add some more value to our extensions and make your experience with Magento holistic and comprehensive, we partnered with several Magento theme providers, and now, you can use their themes and our extensions together with no issues. So, welcome the themes provided by our partners:

  • Claue by ArrowHiTech;
  • Milano by Alotheme;
  • Market by Magentech.

This offer is equally valuable for both current and future theme customers and our extension users looking for a chance to improve the look of their Magento 2 stores with a new professional theme. Moreover, if you purchase the above themes, we are glad to offer you a 10% discount on the Aheadworks extensions compatible with the partner themes.

Powerful Loyalty Programs in E-commerce: Best Examples

E-commerce loyalty programs present additional sales opportunities that cannot be ignored since they intensify customer engagement and boost sales of any web store.

Powerful Loyalty Programs in Ecommerce: Best Examples

In this article, we will guide you through the beneficial loyalty programs and give you some ideas on their forms and rules. So, let’s start our quick tour.

Reward Program Examples

Point-based Programs

Last year, the Walgreen cosmetics store established a point-based reward program, where customers received points by making purchases in their store. The number of points earned per a single order depended on the value of a particular purchase.

This way, shoppers were motivated to earn more points by spending more money. For example, 1$ was equal to 1 000 points, $2 to 2 000 points, and so on. Such convenient and easy-to-understand system saved them from long-term calculations of the points to be earned from each purchase.

Once the points were earned, they could be used to get discounts on future purchases. With this reward program, Walgreen managed to increase its average order value per customer.

ConnectPOS and Reward Points: The Integration that Bridges Online and Offline Sales

The ultimate goal of any complex business is to combine online and offline sales efficiently.

ConnectPOS and Reward Points: The Integration that Bridges Online and Offline Sales

Only this way it can embrace the whole retail domain and offer products successfully regardless of a particular sales channel. Both, ecommerce operators with brick-and-mortar showrooms and traditional merchants extended to the online segment need the solutions that enable them to provide consistent shopping experience.

ConnectPOS and Reward Points Integration

In order to bring this idea to life, just recently Aheadworks and SmartOSC implemented a new project that integrates ConnectPOS and the Reward Points extension for Magento 2.

Business Idea

It is well known that loyalty programs attract customers and make them consider repeat purchases from a certain retailer. However, offline stores are limited by their location and not able to engage wider areas with only traditional promotions. Online users are more dynamic and able to make purchases from anywhere.

Using the integration opportunities, customers who made their first purchases offline are able to dive into online purchases without losses in loyalty and brand value. The same thing, initially online customers can visit their favorite stores regardless of their own location and, this way, increase the brand’s operational area considerably.

Aheadworks Products Made and Updated in August

Reward Points 1.3 Becomes a Universal Rewarding Tool

The points generated and managed by the Reward Points extension for Magento 2 are used in different sales-related processes.

Reward Points 1.3 Becomes a Universal Rewarding Tool

Last time we highlighted the functionality that processes Magento store refunds with points, including refunding to points, returns of spent points for refunded orders or point withdrawals earned for subsequently refunded purchases. Still, the sales processed by Magento 2 stores may involve even more aspects affecting reward points, e.g. taxes and shipping.

Reward Points 1.3 for Magento 2

The Reward Points extension for Magento 2For example, the EU tax regulation requires online sellers to apply points after taxes, so that the whole order total is considered in calculations. Besides, shipping amounts for remote destinations may constitute an essential part of a purchase and naturally should be rewarded or allowed to be paid with points as well.

So, Reward Points 1.3 provides both the mentioned opportunities as a result of the corresponding extension configuration.

Reward Points 1.1 for Magento 2: Easy Point-related Refunds and Advanced Email Notifications

In accordance with the ecommerce etiquette, rewards points are a compulsory element of any online store.

Not only made to observe traditions reward points are able to motivate additional sales and even take part in transactional processes, including refunds. The next version of our Reward Points extension for Magento 2 allows you that thing and even more to make rewarding closely intertwined with the sales mechanism.

Today we present you Reward Points 1.1 that received a lot of enhancements that significantly extended its scope of competence.

The Reward Points extension for Magento 2Refunds with Points

This function is extremely valuable for any digital store as it brings two obvious advantages. First of all, it allows you to get rid of unwanted money transfers often entailing additional costs. The second and, possibly, more advantageous benefit is that you can retain customers this way and get more sales.

If the setting option ‘Refund to Reward Points Automatically’ is enabled each new credit memo page appears with the Refund to Reward Points checkbox. The box is checked and prefilled by default, so you have nothing to do, if reward point based refunds are usual in your store. Still, traditional refunds are also possible, if you uncheck the box before you save the related credit memo.

New Reward Points for Magento 2 Makes Customers Loyal and Engaged

Reward points are among the most widespread and effective loyalty programs due to their ecommerce relevance, transparency and intangible nature.

They are especially advantageous for merchants as it doesn’t require immediate spendings, including rebates, cash back payments or free gifts, still they allow retaining customers and making them to purchase more beneficially.

New Reward Points for Magento 2 Make Customers Loyal and Engaged

The business logic behind such programs is quite easy. Customers are rewarded with points for some useful activities, e.g. newsletter subscriptions, reviews, social media sharings and sales, of course. Later, they can spend accumulated points on their next purchases, get new points and so on around the circle.

The Reward Points extension for Magento 2Except the main task converting accidental shoppers into regular customers, such programs allow merchants to collect a lot of customer related data and measure obtained results. For example, using the new Reward Points extension for Magento 2 by Aheadworks you’ll be able to segment customers by their lifetime order values. Reward Points are suitable for both SMBs and enterprise companies.
