Along with those powerful new features, AmeriCommerce has also expanded the checkout process to include split payments and multiple payments so customers can check out using multiple methods of payment including credit cards, applying reward points and gift certificates.

The new Customer Rewards System creates closer ties to customers through a rewards-based loyalty program. Store owners can assign points for purchase, bonus points, and incentivize social sharing on Facebook and Twitter to earn reward points. These points can then be used at checkout and applied as a payment or for a gift. The rewards system tracks these customer points and allows the merchants to set their own point conversion values. Built-in tools can even alert customers of new and expiring points as a way to keep customer engagement high in the program.
