How the Referral Program Works

Referral Marketing

Your customer refers a friend

Each customer in your store gets a unique link with a referral code. The customer invites
their friends using the link or the referral code to your store.

Friend makes a purchase

The friend (referred person) visits your store using the unique link, enters his email to
get his discount code. And then makes a successful purchase.

Your customer gets a reward (discount) too

Upon successful referral purchase, your customer gets a reward, which can be a percentage
discount or a flat discount or a free shipping. You can choose the type of the reward in the Retainful settings.
