Now In Beta – Check In With Belly From Your Phone!

Merchant blog post mobilecheckins

We’re committed to continually improving the Belly experience for every Member and Merchant. That’s why our latest update lets you get through the line faster when you check in and earn Belly Points right from your phone. When you’re within range of the Belly iPad, your app will recognize that you’re at a Belly Business, allowing you to check in and earn points, bypassing the iPad entirely. Game changer.

Earn points easier and faster than ever before by opening your Belly app and tapping “Check In” after you’ve made a purchase. Bada boom, bada bing!

Here’s How It Works:

  1. Download the latest version of the Belly app

  2. Enable Location Settings within your app

  3. Visit your favorite Belly Businesses, make a purchase and start earning points!

Take a peek below to see mobile check-ins in action on both iPhone and Android apps.

**Mobile Check-in FAQs

**

**Can any Belly Member check in with their mobile phone?

** Any Member with the latest iPhone or Android mobile app can check in from their mobile phone.

**I downloaded the new app, but can’t check in on my phone. Help?

** In order to check in via your mobile phone, location services need to be enabled. If location services are disabled, a large QR code will appear on screen so you can still check in at the Belly iPad.

**Can I still check in using the iPad and my QR code?

** For sure! If you prefer to use your QR code, you can use your physical BellyCard or simply tap the “View Code” button within the mobile app to check in at the iPad.

**Can I redeem rewards from my phone?

** With the exception of Stored Rewards, like Belly Bites, reward redemptions will occur at the Belly iPad so store associates can ensure redemptions are valid.

**Is the Belly iPad going away?

** No way! The Belly iPad will still serve as a check-in portal for Members who don’t have the Belly app.

**Can I check in multiple times on my phone without purchasing anything?

** Nope. Belly has built an extensive fraud monitoring system that will flag any irregular or fraudulent activity. If fraud is detected, points will be removed and in extreme cases, the account disabled. Don't risk it, pal!
