I don't think it is possible with the base OpenERP modules as such and the I can't remember something community. The question is maybe where you would like to have the fidelity card. Would it be something you would scan in the Point of Sale or a separate module where you could scan it. The code of the partner would evidently be in the partner together with his number of points. (These two fields, you could create with the technical features under settings (Database Structure > Models > res.partner) and then add them in the view with debugger mode, afterwards you add the bar code field in the search view of the customer views (This is 20 minutes of work for being able to look up a partner easily and add points and maybe e.g. change his pricelist according to his points manually then. ))

The reason it is not in the base system, might be because everyone will have different rules about when to apply the different rules. For example, you are talking about a discount: he can get it once, forever, or he can get one thing free?

Thank you for your answer.

What I tough is something very easy to use. Yes, I think it needs to be in the Point of Sale. Every time you create a new sale you may ask the customer his personal fidelity card. If not, you continue a simply sale.

Off course, there need to be some basic options on back office where you can choice to work with points, immediate discount or discount of 10% after 10 sales for example.

I think it can be something interesting to add this functionality to POS... Hopefully someone will try to make it. ( ASAP :-) )

Actually, I have seen in the POS that it is perfectly possible to scan the EAN of the partner and this field already exists in the system (partner form) so you could use that as the bar code of your fidelity card. This way you can connect a pos order with a client and keep track of his orders. The only thing you need is to connect it with a discount somehow. And maybe this can be done as I said by changing the pricelist of the customer. Maybe there are also a lot of other people eager to have this?

The following webpage \https://store.biztechconsultancy.com/blog/increasing-customer-lifetime-value-businesses/ confirms how important it is (as ever) to keep and motivate your existing customer and attract new ones.

It seems strange that a fidelity functionnality is not a basics in Odoo which claims to be in competition with the best in class other crm suites.

Strange also to see that only a very few people on this forum are having questions about fidelization of customers.

I am not a developper; but I can imagine that a specific new field can be added to the customer form in order to calculate and accumulate the fidelity "points" ; then we need a periodic report that lists the so called "points" by customer/period etc in order to effectively give the points to each eligible customer.

More sophisticated approaches may need a specific new module, for better integration (with email templates to inform the customers)
