How it works

Contacts' custom properties will be created and will start to synchronize from LoyaltyLion to Omnisend in real-time. Note, historical data will not be uploaded However, you can do it manually by extracting your contacts from LoyaltyLion and importing them to Omnisend. While doing so, be certain to map contacts custom properties accordingly:

  • LoyaltyLion approved points: LoyaltyLion_points_approved

  • LoyaltyLion pending points: LoyaltyLion_points_pending

  • LoyaltyLion spent points: LoyaltyLion_points_spent

  • LoyaltyLion number of rewards claimed: LoyaltyLion_rewards_claimed

  • LoyaltyLion date enrolled in program: LoyaltyLion_enroll_date

  • LoyaltyLion referral URL: LoyaltyLion_referral_url

  • LoyaltyLion loyalty Tier: LoyaltyLion_loyalty_tier

  • LoyaltyLion birthday: LoyaltyLion_birthday

  • LoyaltyLion insights segment: LoyaltyLion_insights_segment

Note! Our Birthday workflow can be triggered by the 'birthday' property only. That's why if you'd like to send birthday emails based on the dates you've collected using LoyaltyLion, you'll need to export the contacts that have the 'LoyaltyLion_birthday' custom property and import this file mapping this custom property to the default Omnisend's 'birthday' property. You can find a guide on how to map data in this article.


  • You can send emails using LoyaltyLion points available to communicate to customers who are close to their next reward and encourage them to complete an activity.

  • Send an email using the LoyaltyLion referral URL to encourage referrals thereby increasing your customer acquisition.

  • Target customer groups based on their loyalty information e.g. loyalty program members vs non-members.

  • Send an email to improve customer engagement - segment customers using loyalty insights: most loyal customers, the ones at risk, and the ones that need winning back.

  • Personalize emails by including loyalty information, such as approved points, total points, post-purchase emails, etc.
