Embed a Referral Widget that links to my store's ReferralCandy Portal Access Page

Last Updated: Jul 21, 2017

‚ÄčThe ReferralCandy 'Referral Widget' can be embedded on your website's front page (or any page for that matter) to show a widget that pops up and floats at the bottom right corner of the page.  

The widget (shown in the example below) invites visitors to sign up for your referral program. It contains a button that when clicked, sends them to your ReferralCandy Advocate Join Page

Be sure to enable new signups through your ReferralCandy Portal if you choose to use this widget. You can change this setting by going to "Edit Referral Program > Settings". 

Your referral campaign must be active in order for the Referral Widget to appear. 

For Shopify retailers:

  1. In your ReferralCandy dashboard:
    1. Go to "Edit Referral Program > Widgets". 
    2. Scroll to "Referral Widget".
    3. Copy the HTML/javascript snippet.
  2. Then, in your Shopify admin panel:
    1. Go to "Themes".
    2. Click on "Customize Theme".
    3. Click on "Theme Options" and select "Edit/HTML/CSS".
    4. Under "Layouts", click the current layout. 
    5. Scroll down and paste the Widget HTML/javascript snippet before the HTML </body> tag.
    6. Click on "Save".
    7. Click on "Preview".
    8. Make sure your referral program is Active.

For retailers on other platforms:

If your shopping cart platform allows insertion of a HTML/JavaScript snippet (or if you are self-hosting), you can embed a Referral Widget.
  1. Go to your Widgets page.
  2. Go to the 'Referral Widget' section at the bottom of the page
  3. Copy the HTML/JavaScript snippet.
  4. Insert into your store's front page just before the HTML </body> tag.
