  • Membership level qualifier: Determines the minimum amount of points (or custom qualifier events) that customers need to meet in order to belong to a particular Membership Level.
  • Membership level multiplier: Determines the bonus/extra points that customers will earn when they belong to a particular Membership Level.
  • A base membership level is needed: All Membership Programs must have a base Membership Level. Example: 0 points needed to be in the Basic Level, membership_level_multiplier= 1 (no additional points earned) This will allow the system to label all participating customers as members of a basic/beginning level.
