Ecommerce giant ekmPowershop.com teamed up with addictivepoints this week, bringing a powerful reinvention of merchant reward schemes to tens of thousands of online businesses.



Retailers large and small can look forward to a boost in repeat custom when they use the new integration on their ekmPowershop.com online store. By using addictivepoints’ universal currency, shop owners can reward their customers with desirable, branded consumer products and services.



addictivepoints is a simple plug and play loyalty system that lets shop owners action and reward customers on a flexible and effective scale. Using a nifty widget which is activated on the shop’s checkout process, addictivepoints allows a shop owner to reward a customer for positive actions such as buying an item or even ‘liking’ on Facebook. Redemption and ‘rewards’ are then handled by the addictivepoints system.



The platform comes loaded with a simple-to-use, real time analytics package which gives a shop owner the ability to see exactly what a customer has been doing on their site so that promotions can be more accurately targeted.



Steven Hickey comments from ekmPowershop.com, where they power 1 in every 5 online shops in the UK: “In the past this type of scheme has been exclusive to big retailers such as Sainsbury’s and Argos with Nectar cards. It’s great that a scheme that builds on this, but has countless more collection and spend function, is now available to SMEs. Shop owners now have an effective tool to drive more sales and interactions, and get a better understanding of what their customers are actually doing on their site. This gives them a wealth of information which can be used to target offers & promotions and push for those much needed sales”.



Fully integrated and ready to use, ekmPowershop.com customers can get started with addictivepoints in a few easy steps.
