Understanding the LoyaltyLion extension
The LoyaltyLion extension for Magento 1 has three primary responsibilities:
- We add a single frontend block to your layout, which loads the LoyaltyLion SDK to provide customer UI
- We add observers to your order and customer lifecycle, to keep LoyaltyLion in sync as this data changes
- We add an additional REST API endpoint to manage price rules and rewards
Installing the LoyaltyLion Magento 1 app
This part of the guide walks you through installing LoyaltyLion on your website.
Download the LoyaltyLion for Magento 1.x package file.

First, you need to enable the extension. Head to
System > Configuration and then click the
LoyaltyLion option, in the left menu under Customers.
Next, you need to pick your configuration scope. Pick the website you wish to set up a Loyalty Program for. LoyaltyLion isn’t visible or active for customers on other websites hosted on the same Magento server.

You can now return to the setup page and check to see if LoyaltyLion was installed correctly.
Customers are authenticated with the LoyaltyLion SDK based on a server-generated token. Before launching your loyalty program, ensure that the
loyaltylion_sdkblock isn't cached.
