Applauz Points are considered your recognition currency. Step up employee recognition by giving Applauz Points to employees for a job well done!

Employees collect Applauz Points and redeem them for custom Company Perks or on the Rewards Marketplace for a gift of their choice.

Applauz also allows Administrators to allocate a Points Allowance to designated "Reward Managers" so they can be responsible for recognizing their teams as well.

Read on to learn more about Applauz Points and how they work!

Note: Only the Applauz Program Administrator has permission to purchase Points and to manage allocation to "Reward Manager's" wallets.

Preparing to Buy Applauz Points

The first step to purchasing Points is making sure your company profile information is complete.

To complete all basic information navigate to:

  1. Program>Settings
  2. Locate the company information section
  3. Fill in your company address, city, country, state/province & zip/postal code
  4. Save your changes

Purchasing Applauz Points

  • Navigate to Program>Buy Points. or the Buy Points button on the main navigation bar of your program.
  • You will land on the "Why Buy Applauz Points" menu. Click on Purchase Applauz Points to move forward with the purchase.


You will be directed to another page where you will find different package options for Points.


Here you have three options:

  • Select your suggested Points options (based on your previous purchase history)
  • Manually select any amount of Points you prefer based on your budget.
  • Select one of the three pre-set packages at the bottom.

Remember10 Applauz Points = 1 USD.

Once you've decided on how many Points you wish to purchase, click on the desired option, and you will be directed to a payment module, like below.


For payment, you have three simple options:

  1. One-time purchase of a desired number of Points (for example, 5,000 Points.) 
  2. Monthly Purchase. This option means that 5,000 Points, for example, will be billed and deposited into your Company Bank on a recurring basis every month. Regardless of how many Points are currently in your Company Bank. 
  3. Monthly Refill. This means up to a maximum of 5,000 Points will be billed and deposited into your company point bank each month. For example, let's say you purchased 5,000 Points. But you only spent 4,000 of them before the next billing cycle; in other words, you have 1,000 remaining. You will only receive the difference (4,000) for your monthly refill.

Remember: You will be charged immediately, and the next payment will be the 1st of every month. However, the recurring monthly payment can be cancelled or edited at any time in Program>Settings.

Note: Once you completed your Applauz Points purchase, you can allocate recognition allowance to any Applauz participants using the Points Allowance module.  Check out the article How to us Points Allowances for step-by-step instructions on granting a Recognition Allowances.
