        Below are the descriptions of each setting found in your earning rule for your reference

        Basic settings

        • What kind of Reward - Choose the kind of reward that you wish to give to your customers. Reward either a discount coupon or loyalty points, for completing the earning rule. Some fields on the setup change depending on the type of reward that you choose. If you select:

        The field "How many points?" will appear when you choose to reward your customers with points. This is where you can enter the number of points to be given to shoppers after completing the earning rule.


        field "Which coupon should the customer get?" will appear. You may then select from the dropdown which coupon to apply for the specific earning rule 

        Initially, the coupon selection is at $ 0.00 as no coupon still exists. You may refer to Creating a Coupon article to learn how to create coupons
        • Twitter Username - This field must contain your store's username on Twitter that you wish for your customers to follow to get their reward.
        • Campaign Name - This is the name of the earning rule as it appears on the rewards pop-up or rewards page. By default, the name is set to "Follow us on Twitter", you may change it according to your preference

        Please make sure that the reward text matches your chosen reward as it will not change automatically when you change the reward
