Loyalty that your customers would enjoy!

5.0 last year

Pros:

Paystone's loyalty and gift card program is extremely easy to use. Integrating into our existing point of sale software was painless, and their support team are an actual joy to work with. From the signing of the initial contract to the execution of our first loyalty transaction, Paystone held our hands to ensure that it was a seamless process. With constant updates to the software, new features are always being released, allowing us to stay fresh and relevant with our customer base. Our top 5 features: 1) Real-time security and fraud prevention 2) Branded customer loyalty and gift card portals 3) Customizable merchant dashboard 4) Flexible options for loyalty earn & burn 5) Multi-tiered Loyalty benefits, allowing us to better reward our most loyal customers.

Cons:

We would like to see a deeper integration into the POS for inventory items.

Press'd Paystone Review

5.0 last year

Comments: Very happy with Paystone and especially the customer service they offer. They are always available to hear us out if we have issues or questions and we feel very well taken care of.

Pros:

The gift car functionality is easy to use from loading gift cards all the way to customer redemption. The reports are easy to run and they allow you to easily mine all relevant data, quickly.

Cons:

We would like to sell digital gift cards that could be emailed out to our customers instead of having to mail them physical cards. This function is available but seemed a bit expensive for us. That said, we are a smaller operation so it could be priced fairly for the market.
