Acknowledge the importance, more and more businesses start using loyalty programs to reward customers and keep them loyal. But did you know how to uplift your current loyalty program? One solution is to set tiers for your customers and encourage them to reach higher tiers with better benefits.

What is VIP Tiers program?#

VIP Tiers program is a type of loyalty program that gives separate tiers of customers different benefits and rewards.

This feature allows you to bring exclusivity and make your customers feel special. Once your customers understand which benefits they can get when reaching the higher tiers, they could be motivated to earn more points or spend more money to attain the next tiers and become a member of an exclusive group. Therefore, it could strengthen the connection between your brand and your customers.

How does VIP Tiers program work?#

The tiers program in BON is a hierarchy system, store owners will set a specific number of tiers their customers could achieve and the benefits for each tier. The higher tiers will receive more benefits. These tiers classify your customers according to the amount of money they have spent or the number of points earned. Store owners could choose if the tiers will exist forever or be reset every year.
