Alpine IQ - How to Create and Link Promotions



One of the most key aspects of POSaBIT's integration with Alpine IQ is the ability to redeem rewards/promos directly from the point of sale! Once a reward or promotion is redeemed, redemption details are then shared automatically with Alpine IQ in order to keep an accurate count of your customers loyalty points.


In order to display and track rewards/promos between both POSaBIT and Alpine IQ, these will need to be build in both systems. Then they will then automatically map together based on their name!
