  • Patent number: 10783538
    Abstract: A relay server applies rewards in a rewards system that includes the relay server, a point of sale terminal, and a reward management server. The relay server includes a storage device, a communication interface, and a processor. The communication interface receives an update request for updating an accumulated reward provided to a customer, and transmits, to the reward management server, the update request. The storage device stores update request data indicating the update request was transmitted to the reward management server. The communication interface receives a reward updated result indicating that the accumulated reward provided to the customer was updated. When the reward updated result is not received within a predetermined time, the communication interface transmits, to the point of sale terminal, a reward update pending result indicating that the update request is pending.
