Extend the reach of your referral program by enabling coupon codes for subscription products managed by Shopify subscription apps. You can enable this feature for the Advocate and Friend Offer on one-time products, subscription products, or both.

What you’ll need:

  1. A Shopify store

  2. A third-party subscription app that is integrated with your Shopify store that uses Shopify’s Subscription API (non-exhaustive sample list below):

    1. ReCharge Subscriptions

    2. Seal Subscriptions

    3. Skio Subscriptions

    4. Bold Subscriptions

    5. Loop Subscriptions

  3. Products managed by the subscription app, such as one-time purchases, subscription products, or both.

Note: If available (and where applicable), it is recommended to first directly integrate with your subscription platform here: https://my.referralcandy.com/integration before proceeding.
