with a Semy Customer Success Manager
First things first, book an onboarding call with your dedicated customer success manager who will provide you with a demo of the platform and walk you through each of the steps below.
Important Note: Please book this call in the next 1-3 days to stay on track with your launch schedule and invite anyone from your team who will regularly use the Semy platform (typically marketing, social media, etc.).
Identify Your Semy Signature Items
The Semy app will feature 3 to 7 of your most popular items for digital gifting and campaign redemption. These signature items are typically your most popular or most requested items.
For each item, you’ll need a short title, description, price, and a high-resolution photo.
For your initial profile setup, you can submit these items using the form below or have them ready for your onboarding call, and your Semy success manager will help you upload them. Once you’re live on Semy, you’ll be able to add and swap these items within the platform as often as you like.

Train Your Staff in Under 10 Minutes
Once you’re set to launch your first campaign, you’ll need to be sure your staff and team members are prepared and ready to redeem Semys.
In short, customers will present a unique code for each Semy, and once verified, your staff will redeem Semys in your POS the same way you redeem any other promotion, coupon, or special.
To support you in your training efforts, below is an employee training document you can send to staff members or print and post at your locations.
Access Your Dashboard.
Once your account is ready to review, you’ll receive a link from your customer success manager to log into the platform.
Within Semy, you can add team members, send campaigns, manage phone numbers, change your siganture items, track your metrics, and more.
Once you approve your profile, we’ll push it live.
You’re live on Semy.
Once your profile is live, we’ll let the world know your digital items are reading for digital gifting.
In addition to running Semy campaigns, our most successful merchants spread the work through their social media profiles, on-premise activation, and co-promotion through other campaigns and specials.
Frequently Asked Questions
Depending on the promotion, number of engaged contacts you send to, and readiness of your staff to redeem the Semys for customers, you can expect a healthy return on your monthly investment. Once you develop your first campaign with your customer success manager, we will be able to give you a clearer percentage range to expect back.
We’ve found the best way to train staff on redeeming Semys for customers is to build it into your new hire training. For those that are already a part of your team, you can direct them to this video on what to expect.
We generally recommend you take the same steps that you normally would as you do in your day-to-day operations. For example, you can redeem the offer and provide another item of the same value, or redeem the offer and use it as a credit toward the bill.
