You are able to decide how many of a referred friend's purchases will count toward a reward for the advocate.

For example, if you set this to "A friend's first purchase + 1 of friend's subsequent purchase" (this example assumes that it takes 1 referred purchase to get 1 reward):

  1. Mary shares her referral link with Joe.

  2. Joe clicks the referral link and clicks through to your store.

  3. Joe makes a purchase at your store, and the app detects that Mary has made a referral.

  4. A reward is sent to Mary.

  5. Joe makes a second purchase at your store. The app detects this and that Mary is eligible for a reward for Joe's second purchase.

  6. A reward is sent to Mary for Joe's second purchase.

  7. Joe then makes a third purchase at your store. The app detects this but does not send a reward to Mary (as you've only set the system to reward advocates for a friend's first 2 purchases).

To change this setting:

  1. Go to the Reward Settings tab

  2. Click on the Reward advocate for friend's dropdown.

  3. Select the number of repeat purchases by a friend you'd like to reward the advocate for and click on Save Changes

Note: ReferralCandy only charges commission on the first 3 purchases that a referred friend makes from any given advocate's referral link.
