Introduction πŸ“–

What is NPS?

NPS is a tool used to gauge the loyalty of your customers to your business or brand and creates a score. It is a measurement of customer loyalty, by using 1 simple question:

β€œHow likely are you to recommend our company to a friend or colleague?”

How does it work?

Your customers are divided into three categories: Promoters, Passives, and Detractors.

Scores are calculated by simply subtracting the percentage of Detractors from the percentage of Promoters. Passives do come into the final score as they are included in the total number of respondents.

Lets use an example:

(Promoters - Detractors) / (Total Respondents) x 100 = NPS

(40 - 15) / (100) x 100 = 25

What happens if you don’t want to use the NPS feature?

We understand that NPS is still valuable to your business, so if the NPS settings are turned off on the collector page, we will automatically generate a score based on the star ratings from the customers.

Note: If the NPS is turned on at a later date, the NPS score will reset. The NPS question is also only available on the Grow plan & above.

API Users:
