Set up Reward Groups

Sometimes paying a customer in cash might not be the best approach. Sometimes you might need to thank them for their loyalty to your business or add a personal touch to the payment you send out to them. Rewards might come in handy for such situations.

By setting up Reward Groups using Duck Creek Payments, you can use Payment Service Providers (PSP), who provide Rewards as a payment solution, to offer payouts to your customers.

Before you Start

Before you start following this guide, you should understand the concepts related to the Payments application. You have also have access to the Tenant Portal and permission to install and configure Apps.

How it works?

To connect to a PSP who offer Rewards, you will need to install the Provider's App. You can find a list of Apps that connect to the PSP through the Marketplace. Once you have installed the App of your choice, you will be asked to submit the credentials that you use to connect with the Payment Service Provider (PSP), along with the PSP's features that you want to use.

After you have configured and saved the App, you can build a group of Apps that provide Rewards as a payout. You can then have Payments use the Reward Group and transact with the PSPs on your behalf.

Follow this guide to the end to see how to install and configure a Reward Group in the Tenant portal.
