The Store Overview and Ideas

Modified on Wed, 21 Dec 2022 at 02:59 AM


In your Store, you can see the items and opportunities listed by your organization.  Users can either buy items directly, buy entries to a raffle draw to increase their chance of winning the item, or bid on items in an auction.  Manage your Store from the Motrain dashboard.



Tip: Consider your user personas when loading store items.  What are their interests?  What do they value?  Items or opportunities that enhance learning further or help people to perform better at their job are great ideas.  Bring in your marketing team to offer branded products and promote brand awareness, familiarity, and loyalty.

We often get asked:  "What should I put in the store?".  Here are some store item ideas: 


No/low-cost items:  

  • access to premium content, webinars, support material, conferences, tutoring
  • choices - on work/holiday schedule, job placement, teammates
  • privilege – become a mentor, project lead, premium parking spot
  • options – assignment extension, project choice, membership extension

Higher cost items:

  • real items – clothing, electronics, lifestyle products, food
  • services – transit passes, house cleaning, food delivery
  • experiences – guided tours, massage, yoga classes, discounted courses
  • donations – charities of choice or partnership organizations

Lastly, consider how your users will redeem their items.  Learn more about our redemption options.
