Ideally, you want to set the minimum purchase amount to be as low as possible so that it's easier for your Advocates to make referrals and earn rewards, thus building positive referral momentum.
However, if you're offering a Cash Reward, make sure that the minimum purchase amount is set above the cash reward amount to prevent yourself being out of pocket from each referral.
For example, if you set the minimum purchase amount to be $10.00:
Scenario 1 (A friend makes a referred purchase of $15.00)
The referred purchase is considered for the calculation of the monthly subscription and the Advocate is eligible for a reward.
Scenario 2 (A friend makes a referred purchase of $5.00)
The referred purchase is considered for the calculation of the monthly subscription but the Advocate is not eligible for a reward.
Note: You are able to change the currency that the minimum purchase amount is based on. Learn more here.
To change the minimum purchase amount:
- Go to your account's Referral Reward page.
- Go to the box with the title "Conditions for reward".
- In the item "The referred friend must spend at least...", click the "[Edit]" link.
- Enter the minimum purchase amount that you wish to set and click save.
