Style allowed me to enter the URL of my store, along with choosing the primary and secondary colors for branding.
For this setting, I had to download a separate points and rewards plugin for WooCommerce. Once done, I was able to sync the rewards system from the new app toggling the button to the right.
Rewards also lets you enter a notice to display on the Rewards page, like a coupon code for loyal customers. Plus, you can define the number of points you want to give customers for registering on the app (leave the field empty if you want to give none).
I used this setting to configure the plugin to display my WooCommerce store inside the Perk Peak app. It also gave me the option to hide or show out-of-stock items. Additionally, I was able to:
- Choose WooCommerce as your eCommerce system
- Put up a featured image
- Decide whether you want to display Featured, On Sale, or All Products
- Choose a navigation title (e.g., Shop or Sales)
- Define the number of products you want to load initially
This setting is where I enabled the option to display my WordPress blog in Perk Peak. It also lets me upload a featured image and decide on the number of posts to display per page.
Events require you to download a dedicated Events Calendar plugin for WooCommerce. Once you set it up, use the options in this setting to keep your visitors informed about upcoming promotions, launches, and deals.
Perk Peak also lets you configure and send push notifications to users. Through its settings, you can write a custom title, and message, and choose a URL to send visitors to. The best part is that you can set up UTM parameters to track click analytics directly inside the Perk Peak app.
Clicking this will direct you to the support page on the developer’s website. Here, you can type your query, and send the message directly to their team.
