How to use the tools on Nukta to promote your retail business WITHOUT running a loyalty program.

The name suggests that its a loyalty program. While its true that you can build a loyalty program using our platform, there are tools on our dashboard that will allow you to market your retail store WITHOUT running a loyalty program.


We understand why you may not want to run a rewards program. You may not be in a position to proportionately reward your customers. After all, customers will expect the reward if you’ve promised it to them. Yes, we understand that not all stores can afford to run a traditional loyalty program. There are numerous studies proving that a well run program WILL give you a good return. But, that’s a discussion for another day. Today, we’ll assume you want to use marketing tools but without the rewards costs.

Here’s how:

Before we start, you should know that you can sign up for a free, no credit card, no obligations free trial. This gives you access to the dashboard and test all the tools before deciding HOW to use them. So, once you get your credentials and log in, you can get into the settings to define how many points you want to give per unit of your selected currency.

Once inside the setup account section, scroll down and find the issuance rate box. Set your points to “1” In other words, your issuance rate is 1=1

The key part of using the Nukta tool WITHOUT having to run a loyalty program is to NOT upload or publish any rewards!

Before you start using any of the tools you’ve got to invite your customers to sign up for your program.

  1. You ask your customers to sign up through

2. Once they sign up, they will automatically get their own virtual card number along with a welcome email. If you have a database of customer emails, there’s a bulk upload import feature under utility.

3. Encourage them to quote their card number/email each time they buy from you. Ask your employees to remind them.

So, your asking yourself — why would customers do this?

You can entice them with 3 possible strategies. Depending on the nature of your business, you can decide which may work best for you:
