Nice Idea, but not well executed. There are a few big issues:
1) An advocate can limit the FB share to just themselves (by selecting this option in a pull-down menu above the share button) and still collect the discount. If someone wants to game the system that way, it's very easy and obvious to do.
2) The FB share looks bare bone. There does not seem to be a way to influence the image FB pulls into the post, nor can the post be pre-populated with a message. What good does a bad looking post?
3) The Coopt reward for sharing uses a discount that you have to create manually in Shopify. That discount's validity is not tied to successful shares. Therefore, if the discount code becomes public knowlegde (e.g. by someone posting it somewhere), anyone can redeem it, sharer or not.
These are substantial short comings for a referral app, where the basic idea must be to reward for performance. So we deleted the app.
Great support, great concept! refunding customers post purchase is a much more powerful incentive!
Amazing early results & easy to implement!!!

I created 10% off code when my visitor shared my shop using Coopt. I tested different offers, but by far the Coopt offer had the highest conversion rate. It is nice that I no longer have to give blind discount to visitors. Now, I have visitors help me spread the word and they get the discount. (win-win!) Highly recommend this app!
Definite recommend. Great point solution app! Great for high consideration purchases like ours since friends trust friends. And even though the sharer has not bought from you yet they are signaling intent which is a great funnel metric. Oh yeah...great fast support at all points of the day and night.
very easy to set up, works great. We also use the other Coopt app for automated offers for sharing at checkout

This app has worked really well for us. We had 13 people share and 8 coupons redeemed in one day after posting on Facebook. These numbers have greatly increased the more we use the app, generating a lot of sales.

Originally, i had a one star review here.... but the support changed my mind. My issue seems to be a one-off and we're running more test. thanks for being there support
cannot recommend this app and the other Coopt app highly enough if your goal is to increase shares on Facebook. I'm not sure if any other app allows you to get shares like this but it is much more effective that just Facebook ads alone. Customer support has also been great. try it!
COOPT has done it again! Setup was a breeze...one click and 5 seconds later and it was installed. I've been using COOPT v1 for a month and was very happy with the outcome. This app is great to extend discount codes to our existing customers and current social media following.
Love it. We've been using the original Coopt app on another store for months with great success. This is the "Do-it-yourself" version of their original app - and allows us to offer the discount for sharing to our social media fans and also in marketing emails. Extremely easy to use and provides information on who shares, for how much, comments they make, and how many friends/views/clicks each share gets.
