Turn Shoppers Into Loyal Customers

Smile.io allows you to quickly set up and run your own rewards program. When you reward your customers they are more loyal, more likely to return, and more likely to make repeat purchases.

Over 15,000 merchants are boosting revenue and repeat purchases with a Smile.io rewards program. These merchants are seeing a 15% increase year-over-year in revenue and a 20% increase in repeat purchases.

Inkbox was able to increase repeat purchases 84%!

A Very Generous Free Plan to Help You Grow

Helping you grow your revenue is priority number one for us. That is why you can run a loyalty points program and a referral program at no cost on our free plan.

Reward for:

  • Purchases

    Give shoppers loyalty points for the most important thing: making a purchase. Customers can spend their loyalty points on a $ discount, % discount, free shipping, or store gift cards (Shopify Plus stores); the choice is yours.

  • Customer Referrals

    Turn your existing customers into powerful marketers that generate sales. Give loyalty points, coupons, and more for referring friends, and even give the friend a reward as an extra incentive.

  • Account Registrations

    Eliminate guest checkouts and gain valuable email addresses by rewarding customers with loyalty points for registering an account.

  • Social Shares

    Give your customers loyalty points if they share your store with their friends on Twitter or Facebook.

  • Social Follows

    A strong social following is a great way to build up brand awareness and sales. With Smile.io you can give loyalty points to customers who follow you on Twitter or Instagram, as well as liking a Facebook page.

  • Birthday Rewards

    Show your customers you care by giving them a present on their birthday.

  • And More!

    We are developing more ways to reward customers weekly. Our goal is to make your store more successful through rewards and customer loyalty!

  • Powerful Features to Take Your Program to the Next Level

    If you are looking to make your program as powerful as possible, you want the features available on our paid plans. We already work with some of the largest stores on Shopify and Shopify Plus. Here are a few of the added features available on our different paid plans.

    • Advanced Visual Customization

      Add embedded loyalty point balances and referral links to your site. Also create a totally branded rewards program with our theming. You are able to add in custom imagery, select your preferred brand color, and even add in your own logo!

    • VIP Program

      Offer your customers even more incentive to continue shopping with you. VIP tiers allow customers to earn additional rewards and earn loyalty points faster based on how much revenue or points they’ve generated over a period of time. You can also segment your customers based on how loyal they are.

    • Tab-less Program

      Looking to create an integrated rewards program? You can use our intent system to build a program without the tab. You can link to the modal from your header, footer, or any clickable object.

    • Build with our API

      Use our API to reward for any customer action. You can also use this API to sync Smile.io data with other applications such as your email service provider.

    • And More!

      These are just a few of the added benefits on our paid plans. We also have explainer pages, customer segmentation, the ability to exclude customer groups, and are adding more weekly!

Definitely makes you smile! I would recommend this app to anyone and everyone!


What an amazing app! I love the rewards program because it gives customers the incentive to return and to market your store for you! Referrals are awesome!


amazing amazing amazing amazing


Hi Everyone,
I just installed the app and i got some assistance from stuart and thus far it is going well. It isn't too hard to setup at all and staff helped me out with my questions. Best of luck to everyone else


justo lo que buscaba. Servirá para alientar a mis clientes


Super easy to setup and install. We were able to install and setup the program within 20 minutes. (Note: We did download Smile's whitepapers on setting up a referral/rewards program so we knew what we wanted to do ahead of time).

Support is fantastic too! I had an issue logging in the next day which required the developers to code and release a fix - and they did so within minutes (fastest development and release I have ever seen)!

The only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is we are on the free plan which limits us from being able to connect with Mailchimp to keep customers updated on their rewards points. We will likely move to a paid plan by mid-year, but it would be really helpful if the free plan allowed us to add our logo and connect with Mailchimp as a base (i.e. allow 2 app connections on the free plan vs 1). Local small businesses need a starting point that works so they can generate enough revenue to grow into your paid plans. Just something to consider


Great app - works very well, seems to encourage customers to like, follow, share & review :)


nice, im jus starting not sure if its gonna work


The Shopify setup was seamless. I'm really impressed with the program and have been using the paid version for several months. The Smile update a few months ago was super clutch too. If you have a Shopify business, definitely start with the free version. See how your customers react and then get the paid one. You will only get good results out of it if you actually put work into it. The app doesn't just grow once it's installed. and if you need any help figuring out best practices, the customer service is great. I've spoken with Maggie and Elli on many occasions and they are quick to respond and help get things done easily. Not trying to sell them. Just letting you know that this program works, it's reasonably priced and integrates with the top apps like Klaviyo, Yotpo, Shopify, and more.


Be careful installing this app, as they will add code that won't uninstall when you leave. Combine their sloppy attitude with the deep access they ask for, and it becomes a no-go.
