What is a Point Source?

All points originate from a point source and are awarded into various point accounts. You are able to run reports based on how many points were issued by specific point sources, and also gain insight into where those points were spent, when they expired, and what your existing liability is for points currently available to customers. Each point source consists of configurable attributes, has an indicator providing the status of the point source, and allows you to build in frequency restrictions and inventory controls. Point sources also provide an audit log indicating point modifications (additions and deductions), points spent, and point expirations. Each point source will require at least one point account to link to, but can be linked to any number of point accounts.


You might set up a point source to award points into a Spendable account as well as into a Tiers account, where the points are used to assess a customers tier level.
