The Purchase Review Period feature allows you to define the length of time before you can send referral rewards to Advocates. This will allow you to review details of referred purchases and determine if one needs to be deleted (due to a customer return) or disqualified (due to a fraudulent referral).
Within the review period of all referred purchases, you can delete a purchase. Hence, the review period is typically set in line with your return policy to take into account any canceled or returned purchases.
Within the review period of the 1st referred purchase made by an Advocate's friend, you can disqualify a referral as invalid. Future purchases made by the Advocate's friend will not be considered referred purchases if you disqualify the referral.
Setting up a Purchase Review Period
To update the referred purchase review period for your account:
Go to the Campaigns then click Settings.
Select Purchase Review Period.
From the dropdown options, choose the duration of your review period.
Click Save changes.
Review period "frozen" in a Stopped campaign
When you set your campaign to Stopped, the review period for pending referred purchases is frozen. Once the campaign is set to Live, the purchase review period will continue and rewards will be processed again.
This can also happen to campaigns that have been stopped or accounts that have been suspended by the system due to a significant error that you need to resolve. You can set the campaign to Live again after the issue is fixed.
