  • Pick up the block, and enter its path to Paths of templates to add Social block before option. Our button block will be shown on top of it.

How to make Likes and Shares generate points

When appropriate buttons are shown on product pages, it's' need to create corresponding rules for each social button.

To make such rule, go to the Reward Points -> Earning Rules and create a rule of Behaviour type, with one of these Events:

  • Facebook Like
  • Facebook Share
  • Twitter Tweet
  • Google+ Like
  • Pinterest Pin

Then, whenever registered customer likes or shares any of your Pages, he will receive points.
