Integration Overview: Different ways to integrate your store with ReferralCandy

Last Updated: May 12, 2016 06:16AM UTC
There are a couple ways to integrate ReferralCandy with your website and the type of integration you choose depends on your ecommerce platform and the level of customization you want.

You should only use 1 integration type and you should not mix and match the integration steps.


(List of known platforms that are currently not supported by ReferralCandy)

In general, the Standard Integration will not require additional technical expertise to implement while the Advanced Integration options will require some additional technical expertise to implement.
 
Integration Type Steps Needed
Standard Integration
(Most commonly used)
If your ecommerce platform is listed on our Setup page, there will be more specific instructions but for most platforms the 2 basic steps are:
  • Insert a simple JavaScript code snippet on the 'thank you' page that your customer sees once they have completed the purchase on your site.
  • BCC ReferralCandy on the invoice email that is sent out to customers once the purchase is completed
    • Details on what needs to be present in these emails can be found here
Additional information about the Standard Integration can be found in this article
Advanced Integration (JavaScript Only)
  • Insert an advanced JavaScript code snippet that will require additional customer variables to be exposed on the 'thank you' page of your checkout process
    • ‚ÄčThe availability of these customer variables on your check out varies from platform to platform
More information about this advanced integration type can be found here.
Advanced Integration (JavaScript Only + Post Purchase Popup) This is similar to the option above, with the addition of a Post-Purchase Popup as part of the integration
  • Insert an advanced JavaScript code snippet that will require additional customer variables to be exposed on the 'thank you' page of your checkout process
    • ‚ÄčThe availability of these customer variables on your check out varies from platform to platform
More information about this advanced integration type can be found here.
Advanced Integration (API)
  • Insert a simple JavaScript code snippet on the 'thank you' page that your customer sees once they have completed the purchase on your site.
    • A sample of the snippet can be found here
    • This is the same snippet as found in the Standard Integration
