Automate Your Reward Program with Tango Card and Zapier
Jackie Thompson|February 7th, 2019
Building a full API integration isn’t easy when you don’t have a team of developers ready to jump in. But that doesn’t stop you from needing to send digital rewards to your employees, customers, or prospects.
That’s where Zapier comes in—when paired with Rewards Genius, it automates your rewards and incentives program, so you can get rewards out instantly.
What Is Zapier
Zapier is a web-based tool that helps users automate workflows by linking more than 1,300 web applications. This enables applications to easily pass information between themselves with workflows called Zaps.
With a Tango Card integration, Zapier can automate the task of sending digital gift cards within your existing workflows and applications. You simply need to use Tango Card’s web app within Zapier—greatly reducing the time it takes to integrate with Tango Card’s API.
We recommend using the Reward Link Preferred, which lets recipients choose from dozens of top retail gift cards and comes standard with your Rewards Genius account.
At this step, you’ll also be able to choose which custom email template you’d like rewards sent out on as well as your reward value.
4. Test and Finalize
Send a test email to make sure your integration is configured correctly. If everything goes well, your next step will be to email Tango Cardto get production credentials, turn your Zap on, and start sending rewards.
There are a number of popular Zaps that already exist to connect applications like HubSpot, SurveyMonkey, and Salesforce to Tango Card. We recommend using one of these pre-constructed Zaps to get up and running even quicker.
