You can offer a custom friend offer to give loyalty points, gift certificates, gifts, memberships, or similar offers to referred friends through the Promo link option.

  3. Select the Promo friend offer type.

  4. Input your promo link, description, and the link expiry (optional).

  5. Click Save Changes.
