What is FiveStars?

FiveStars is a rewards and marketing platform for local businesses and the communities they serve. Over 14,000 businesses across the US and Canada use FiveStars’ easy, all-in-one marketing program, and over 40 million consumers participate in the FiveStars rewards network to support local businesses.

They help your business get in front of FiveStars members in your area and then automatically get them to promote your business through word of mouth. After customers visit, we keep them coming back faster by automatically sending them enticing offers at the right time. It’s proven marketing to help you make more money while saving time.

The biggest draws for FiveStars are its POS integration, marketing tools, and the sign up process. FiveStars has ramped up their marketing tools with the Autopilot feature and a new promotion feature to bring back customers.

How does FiveStars work?

Set up your rewards and watch customers come in automatically.

FiveStars brings more customers into your store with one powerful marketing program. They help you craft a digital rewards program that gives customers points and gifts for their purchases. Then they build a set of automatically sent campaigns to welcome new customers, celebrate their birthdays, and bring back those who haven’t visited recently.

Customers can sign up in-store or with our mobile app so you’ll collect accurate customer information over time without slowing down your line

Our AutoPilot feature automatically sends your customers an app notification, text message, or email with special offers that bring them back 10x more effectively than other marketing tools.

With our promotions tool, you can create custom promotions that target all customers, new customers, or other specific groups. One-time promotions are a great way to highlight a special event or sale.

It’s easy for your staff to not only redeem customers’ rewards but to also personalize every customer interaction. Our software helps you learn your customers’ names and preferences.

Every time a customer signs up, checks in, or redeems a reward, your FiveStars Dashboard will track that activity. Watch your AutoPilot and Promotions work together to bring your customers back faster.

Are you a Business Owner? This is how it works!

You can view a demo of how the program works here. FiveStars uses a few simple steps to interact with customers using the loyalty program. Signup only requires a phone number, and if it’s too busy to gather additional information from your customer, the program provides options to acquire that information later via text or email campaigns, or through the customer’s interaction with the FiveStars web or mobile app. Recently FiveStars made tablets a standard hardware feature in their pricing model, so the customer facing tablet can be used to gather data without tying up the cashier line.


FiveStars will send you an installation kit with a USB key to be plugged into your main POS terminal or computer. Once your device recognizes the software, you’ll follow the prompts to install it. The Installation articles on FiveStars gives you step by step instructions, and FiveStars offers installation support if you need any assistance.

Sign Up

When signing up new customers, you’ll scan their FiveStars card first. New customers are registered by entering a phone number. Optional information such as name, email, birthday, and notes, can be collected at that time, or via the options listed above.

User Interface

The FiveStars program is pretty square, which isn’t a bad thing. Large buttons and letters make selecting options on the screen fairly easy. The design makes sense and the colors are unobtrusive.

POS Integration

So far, FiveStars has been pretty successful with POS integration. They operate in all fifty states, as well as Canada.


I found the Dashboard Demo pretty helpful. Your dashboard can be accessed on the FiveStars website. The dashboard comes with three levels of access.

Read Only Information can be viewed, but not edited.

Dashboard headings help you navigate through various program options.

Members – You can view, sort and tag members here, as well as edit member information.

Reports – You can generate member and usage reports here, and additional reports depending on your program features.
