Achievements are how customers win badges. An achievement asks customers to repeat the same earning method a certain amount of times. Unlike loyalty systems, they don’t award points for each action but for each repetition of the action.
When customers repeat the action the right number of times, they win the badge. Of course, you can use the badge to unlock other rewards in loyalty systems.
Create and edit achievements
To edit achievements, go to WooRewards → Features → Achievements → Achievements. You will see a list of all existing achievements and a brief view of the action to perform to unlock the achievement.
To create an achievement, click on the Add button on the bottom of the achievements list.
A popup will show.
Set the values.
After that, you need to select the action to perform. Click first on an Action to perform and click on Next to see further settings.
To edit an achievement, click on the 3 points right of the desired row and on the Quick edit button.
Achievements, badges and points and rewards systems
Achievements are a nice way to entertain your customers and encourage them to interact with your website. However, the best way to retain your customers is to reward them for that.
That’s why badges and achievement should only be a first step of a larger points and rewards system. You should really use badges won through achievements as earning methods in a levelling loyalty system granting permanent rewards.
This final goal, for example a permanent discount, will be the true motivation for your customers. Not only will they have the fun of badges hunting, but they will get a real reward at the end.
