Loyalty

The Loyalty add-on taps into Apple's Wallet and Google Pay passes, allowing your business to create digital cards that can be used across a multitude of industries. From boarding passes to event tickets, coupons or membership cards you business can harness the power of this technology that comes works natively in both iOS and Android. If a device does not support this functionality we provide a web solution that offers the similar functionality. This is an add-on feature of Notificare. Before you can subscribe to this add-on you will need to be enrolled in a paid plan.

To access these pages, expand the Settings menu and click in Services like shown below:

For Notificare to be able to create passes you will need to upload a Pass Type ID certificate. More information about this can be found here. Once you have the necessary .p12 file you must upload like shown below:

upload p12

Because these files give access to any provider to create passes for your app, it's a good practice to create these files with a password. In the following field you should provide the password so we can open and extract the information in the file:

p12 password

Finally you should click in the Save button to make sure you store these changes:

Once you have successfully uploaded the certificate, we will display something like this:

p12 info

Because these files have an expiration date they must be renewed every year. When your certificate is expired it will look like this:

p12 expired

You can, at any time, replace an existing certificate with a new one by repeating these same steps.

Soon you have uploaded a valid certificate, you can start creating Apple Wallet passes. To learn more about it, please read the guides located here.

Additionally, if you use the Loyalty v2 add-on, you can also configure this service to create Google Pay passes. To obtain a Google Pay merchant account and assign a service account to it, please read more about it here.

Once you have access to to the Google Pay REST API and a service account, you should have both a Issuer Identifier:
