  • Businesses will receive an initial bundle of loyalty cards and more on request.
  • Businesses will receive a stamp to use on the loyalty cards, but may use their own if they wish.
  • Each time a customer/client makes a purchase they will receive one stamp – no matter how much or how little they spend.
