If you are not using one of ReferralCandy's supported platforms, note that ReferralCandy can integrate with almost any online store. As long as the steps below are possible on your store's eCommerce platform:

  1. Forward/BCC invoice emails to ReferralCandy immediately after each purchase with relevant transaction information.

  2. Insert a JavaScript referral tracking code on your purchase completed page.

For guidance on how to perform these 2 steps for your store, please check with your eCommerce platform's support team, as they are in the best position to help you navigate your platform and confirm this.


Alternatively, you can try JavaScript or API integration if your store does not allow you to forward or BCC invoice emails to ReferralCandy. You can also use these options if you want more accurate tracking or more custom integration.

For an overview of all integration options, please see this article.
