This will redirect you to Astro where you see detailed step by step instructions on how to create a new Button for Astro Loyalty on your Lightspeed account.
You will need to create this button on both the Sale Tab and the Refund Tab. The button setup will be exactly the same on both tabs.

Now that the Lightspeed Integration is enabled you will be able to start checking out customers. These articles will explain how to do this, it is best to read them in order.
