Generating coupon codes depends on the eCommerce platform you're on.

  • For Shopify and BigCommerce stores, coupon codes are auto-generated

  • For other platforms, you will have to create the coupon codes yourself in your platform's admin panel

Shopify and BigCommerce stores

If you are on either Shopify or BigCommerce, then setting up coupon codes is super easy because they allow ReferralCandy to integrate directly with their platform to automatically create coupon codes for use in your referral program.

To set up, go to your Campaign and then select Rewards. Choose Coupon Reward and set your coupon reward preferences for Advocates and Referred Friends.

That’s it, you’re all set! Unique and single-use coupon codes will be created automatically for each Advocate. You can view and track coupons from your store's eCommerce admin panel.
