2.1. Earning Rates
The first step, go to Admin Panel -> LOF Reward Points -> Earning Rates. Then, click to ‘’Add new rate’’ to create a new point earning rate for your store.
In General tab, a list of required information will appear. What you need to do is entering details into these sections to configure the general settings.
- Rule Name: You should set the name of your new earning points rate.
- Description: By adding the description of the new earning rate, you can show the rule’s purpose, and explain how it is used so that your customers will comprehend and easily spend it.

After you configure general information of the new earning rate, let’s move to set Actions. In this part, Magento 2 Reward Point Extension provides you various choices of earning rating types. Let’s choose the type which is suitable and useful for you.
- Give X points to customers: You can fix a certain number of points given for each product.
- Give X points for every spent Y: You can set points you will give to your customers when they spend an amount of money. For example, you can set that “10 points for every $5 spent”. It means that if your shoppers spend $5 for any products, they will gain 10 points at once. In this case, X (points) = 10 points, and Y (money step) = $5
- Give X points as final product price: When setting this type, your purchaser will earn some points equal or over the price of the purchased product. For instance, when you set X = 30 points, your customers will get 30 points if the price of the product is equal or over $30.
- Give X% points of original price: It means that you will give your clients a certain percentage according to the product price.
Next, you should define others actions as below.
- Points (X): You can set some given points for your shoppers.
