    Hi,
    we have purchased AwoCoupon and AwoRewards. We've read the documentation but still are a bit confused about how the components have to be configured, in order they do what we want. Or in other words: we need help.

    Our Goal:
    We want to give registered users the possibility to share a link (which is assigend to them for rewards), and invite their friends to register on our website. If they recommend 5 people successfully (their friends register on the website), they should automatically get an coupon code with 5% discount for buying in our store. If they recommend 10 people, they should get 10%, and so on. We want the coupon codes generated automatically and send directly to the users via e-mail.

    What we did:
    We already created two coupon templates (5% and 10%). We configured the automatic payout with CouponBalance. We created an email recommendation form (invitation). We created a rule that one recommendation with sucessful registration generates 1 point for the sponsor.

    The issues:
    1. How we can configure, that the sponsor gets an email with his coupon code or even displayed in the frontend after he reached the goals?
    2. How we can configure, that 5 points equals coupon code with 5%, 10 points equals coupon code with 10%, and so on?
    3. Can the automatically generated coupons be deleted after they have been used in checkout?

    Hello,

    1. the automatic payout can only handle 1 coupon.  So you can set it up to send a 5% discount after 5 points or 10% discount after 10 points but not both.
    2. You can go to aworewards->coupon payout (request) page and you can setup 5 points gets you a 5% coupon and 10 points gets you a 10% coupon.  Then in the front end, on the credit screen, if the customer has enough points, they will see the options in a dropdown to choose from
    3. Do you want them deleted so they cannot be used more than once?  If so you can set that up in the coupon, number of uses total to 1.  You can also setup awocoupon to delete expired coupons after x days, this is within awocoupon->configuration.

    Thanks for the reply.
    1. Ok, that's a pitty but not that important.
    2. We've now created these coupon / reward point settings. Can you give us a hint what we need to select in the configurations of AwoReward for Automatic and Coupon Payout (Request)? Because in the frontend on the credit history there is no dropdown for choosing.
    3. Is there a possibility that a coupon-code is automatically created and assigned to a user who reached the goals in order the coupon codes won't be the same for everybody?

    2.  The dropdown only appears if you have more than 1 request reward setup and the customer has enough points to claim the rewards.  There are 2 screens to setup request rewards.
    Global convert all point:  aworewards -> configuration -> Coupon Payout (Request)
    Specific convert fixed points: aworewards -> Coupon Payout (Request) screen
    With the global point convert, it all depends on your settings.  If for example, you set points to amount ratio to 10, that means 10 points equals 1 of your currency, and you set minimum payout amount to 2, the minimum payout is an amount and not points, so you would need 2 * 10 = 20 points before you see this option in the front end.

    3.  All coupons passed to customers are uniquely generated.  So yes, no 2 users would ever see the same coupon code.

    Ok, I guess we now understand how the settings work. We tried another thing:
    We want that certain rewards are for certain shopper-groups only but with identic rules.
    1 registration equals 1 point.
    If the user is in the standard-shopper group he should get a coupon of 25 € after 5 successful registration.
    If he is in the vip-shopper group he should get a coupon of 10% after 5 successful registration.

    We configured two rules and assigned them to the respective groups. But after 5 successful registration he can choose both rewards from the dropdown, although he isn't a vip-shopper and therefore shouldn't see the 10% reward. Any ideas?

    Well the rewards are global and are not filterable based on shopper group but that is a good idea.  Will look to adding that in a future update.

    The only way to do what you want is hard code or custom code so options show for the right group.
