            SHOPIFY ONLY - AutoPunch Receipt Forwarding from Shopify - Early Access To Help Us Test Shopify AutoPunch

            EARLY SETUP - SHOPIFY AUTOPUNCH IS NOT FUNCTIONAL YET - BUT YOU CAN HELP US FINISH BY FOLLOWING THE BELOW DIRECTIONS

            This feature is not complete yet,  But setting up your AutoPunch with Shopify with us, we will be able to fully test out AutoPunch Shopify and once we turn on the service, we will ensure it works well with your content.  Also, if we wrap this up soon as intended (about a week to 10 days estimated), we should be able to go back and punch all these receipts you have sent us to catch up.  Before you begin sending receipts to us, please manually punch previous purchases.

            Please contact me with any questions: Gary 949-614-5650


            Below is a step by step walkthrough with pictures for setting up Shopify with LoyalShops AutoPunch.  This process requires a Loyalty Rewards Pro account
            and a Gmail Email address.

            The email you use for Shopify receipts to be received and your LoyalShops EMAIL MUST BE THE SAME.  If you need to change the LoyalShops email, do so in Settings / User Settings.  Save Settings, log out and log back in with the new email address.  This is how we know that the customer receipts are yours.




            Here we will walk you through setting up Auto Forwarding of Consultant Consumer Emails with Gmail. 


            A) Login to your Gmail account, then choose the Gear (1
            )
            ,
            Then Settings (2):




            B) Click on (3) Forwarding and POP/IMAP, then click on (4) "Add a forwarding address"


            D) Proceed with adding "autopunchshopify@loyalshops.com" forwarding email address, then click Next (5). 

            Click on Proceed (6) to accept autopunchshopify@loyalshops.com as a potential forwarding address.   It may look like you may forward all your email by choosing this option, but actually, these steps are just an authorization to forward emails once approved. It will still be disabled after this step is completed and you have full control over what is forwarded.




            BEFORE APPROVAL:


            Under most situations, we will try and approve these within 30 minutes as this approval step is a manual process on the LoyalShops side, but hey, if it's the middle of the night, we have to sleep sometime ;)   So give us up to 12 hours to approve auto-forwarding.  This approval process has to be approved, before continuing.  As soon as we approve, we will send you an Approved AutoPunch email stating so.


            This is what the screen will look like once it's approved (8).  PLEASE INSURE "Disable forwarding" is set (8).  This step just enables the ability to forward mail, in the next few steps we will tell Gmail exactly what type of mail to forward as we only want to forward receipts.  You do not need a Confirmation Code.



            E) Telling Gmail to Send just the Shopify Receipts


            We now want to look at the Gmail Top Menu Options and click on "Filters and Blocked Addresses" (9).  


            Now, in the Filters menu,

            click on "Create a new filter" (10).



            F) To to the entry box "Has the words" (11) and type exactly "shopify_payments
            " - make sure you use the _ character between
            shopify
            and payments.

            Then, click on the "Create filter with this search"  (12)


            G) We are in the home stretch!  Find the Forward it to: and click the Forward button and choose from the dropdown menu, autopunchshopify@loyalshops.com (13).  Then, finally choose the "Create Filter" button (14).


            H) You should now see in the Filters Menu: Matches: shopify_payments

                                                                                 Do this: Forward to autopunchshopify@loyalshops.com   (15)



            If so, you are now
            setup
            to receive Auto Punches from Gmail - CONGRATS!!!

            If you run into issues, please look at these screens from top to bottom, when you find the first place where your screens do not look like yours, then send us an email and a description of the issue you're encountering and we will help you.   We find that often in Step F, that customers put additional content in the From, To and Subject boxes that cause trouble.  We also see that in step 8 people often put Forward a copy too - and thus send all their email to us.  These issues may cause the forwarding to fail.  


            Thanks, 


            LoyalShops
