    S4 is a loyalty technology software that allows Amcal Pharmacies to offer rewards specific to an individual product, deliver customer specific promotions, real time points balances along with the ability to capture customer information and transaction (for basket analysis). S4 automates the loyalty process, provides instant customer information on screen and appends loyalty information to each customer’s receipt when a loyalty card is scanned. S4 is a software that allows your Pharmacy to execute the Amcal Rewards loyalty program and maximise your profit, while offering significant benefits to your loyal customers.

    If you continually see this message please check that your Site Controller box is connected and that your internet connection is operating correctly. If you are still having issues, please contact the Amcal Rewards Help Desk on 1800 220 578 or [email protected]

    If the answer is: “No, and I don’t want to join” Click ‘Cancel’ and the loyalty prompt will be dismissed. Otherwise, it will disappear when you scan the first item. If the customer changes their mind later, clicking on the (+) symbol on the Amcal Rewards Graphic will provide access to sign up a new member

    If the answer is: “No, but I’d like to join” Click on ‘New’ to sign up a member. The sign up form requires certain fields to be populated in order to enroll a member and is intended to be as quick as possible

    • Add the items to the transaction as per the usual process and print the receipt.

    • The receipt you print will be associated with the loyalty card you have just scanned.

    At the bottom of the printed receipt there is a member’s detail section, which displays the member’s points balance (as shown below).

    IMPORTANT: If you do not print a receipt for an Amcal Rewards transaction, the loyalty points and/or redemption will not be processed.

    It is important you print a receipt for all loyalty transactions. If a receipt does not print, contact the Amcal Rewards Helpdesk on 1800 220 578. IMPORTANT:

    If a loyalty transaction is placed on hold whilst another transaction is processed and completed, please ensure that the loyalty card is re-scanned when returning to the ‘on-hold’ transaction to ensure the loyalty transaction is processed successfully.

    Note: The Staff ID is only printed on the receipt as part of the transaction details if this is set up in the specific POS by your Pharmacy.
