NatWest has launched a loyalty scheme to encourage repeated visits to independent shops, including convenience stores.

The ‘Tyl’ smartphone app enables retailers with NatWest to set up a reward scheme for their shop. They can set their own rewards, such as redeemable points for every £1 spent. Customers must have the Tyl app to use the scheme.
