Lootly now integrates with Paywhirl - a recurring payments and subscription software.

The goal of this integration

This integration allows you to automatically sync your subscription plans with the VIP tiers in your loyalty program.

This will allow customers who purchased a subscription to be rewarded based on it.

For example, if you have plan A - $1/m, plan B - $2/m and plan C - $3/m, you could decide to sync these plans with 3 VIP tiers in the loyalty program: tier A - synced with plan A, tier B - synced with plan B and tier C synced with plan C.

You would define different benefits in the different tiers, based on the subscription plans.

For example, you may want to offer more points per dollar to the most expensive subscription plan.

How the integration works

The integration is simple and works in the following way:

  • Customer subscribes to a new plan in Paywhirl = Customer is added to a Lootly VIP tier.

  • Customer changes plan in Paywhirl = Customer is switched to a different tier in Lootly.

  • Customer cancels plan in Paywhirl = Customer VIP tier removed in Lootly

This is handled automatically and does not require any efforts from you, except the initial setup.
