GRS is a global rewards fulfillment platform that enables you to place orders for rewards via a straightforward SOAP API. We also offer a flat-file/CSV integration option over SFTP.

Comprehensive API documentation and support is available to all GRS customers. If desired, we will assign a business analyst to personally assist new partners with their integration.

If you have any questions or inquiries, please contact us. Our goal is to make it easy for you to integrate our rewards platform with any loyalty/recognition/performance solution, website, game, or app.

Overview of GRS workflow

  • GRS provides Partners access to rewards catalogs that are relevant to their regional market(s). Typical catalogs include merchandise, gift cards, travel rewards, event tickets, and more.
  • Partners login to our web-based Partner Portal to create customized reward selections, known as Rewards Galleries. Each Reward Gallery is associated with a particular language and currency, and contains a selection of available rewards from one or more catalogs.
  • Developers can use our Partner API to query for Galleries associated with their account, and search for rewards within their galleries by keyword, price range, and other criteria.
  • Developers can place orders for any reward(s) via a single API call containing product ID(s) and shipping information.
  • The status of all orders is available within the Partner Portal. Alternately, developers can query the status of any order via the API.
