Double points promotions allow your customers to earn double the amount of loyalty points for each £/$/€1 spent with you for a time limited period, during Black Friday weekend, or to promote a new collection launch.
For example, if you usually reward customers with 5 points per $1 spent, they will be able to earn 10 points per $1 spent during the promo period, allowing customers to see the value of your loyalty program more quickly.
Using double points is a great way to re-engage your customers who might be at risk of churning or win some of your customers back!

Allow customers to earn 2x points during periods where they can't use their loyalty reward vouchers, e.g. during a site-wide sale
