Referral Program

As a first step, create your referral program.

Then you can configure the referral program based on business needs by customizing various elements.

Even after setting up a referral program, you can edit or update it as needed.


A referrer is an existing customer of the Store. They are part of the Store's referral program. Their role is to introduce new customers to the store. They do this by logging into their Referral landing page, obtaining a unique referral link, and sharing it with friends and family.

Friend (Referee)

A friend, or referee, is someone who has received a referral link from a referrer. They can use this link to visit the store for the first time. As a reward for using the referral link, they receive a coupon code in the Reward claim popup that they can use for their first purchase at the store.

In the referral program, both the referrer and the friend are rewarded. The friend gets a discount on their first purchase at the store, and the referrer gets a reward or coupon code for their next purchase once the referral is successful. This encourages both existing and new customers to engage with the store.

A unique referral link and code are assigned to each referrer upon their addition. These referral links will help to keep track of the sales pursued by the referrer.

These referral links can be accessed by admin as well as by referrers. This allows for easy tracking and management of the referral program.
