Referral Bee helps you find more customers through word-of-mouth. Compliment your existing marketing with the easiest to use Referral App.

Set up a highly effective, beautiful refer-a-friend program in less than a minute.

How does it work?

Automatically ask each customer to share a discount code with their friends

Referral Bee creates a dedicated landing page in your store and sends each new customer an email asking them to share the page with their friends.

Friends get a discount code of your choice to use for their first purchase

Choose from a percentage or fixed amount discount, or offer free shipping. Referral Bee creates all the discount codes automatically for you.

Reward customers when their friends place an order with you

Choose to offer a discount code to thank customers for the referral—or not. Referral Bee will automatically send the reward email after the customer's first friend places an order using the referral link.

Beautiful analytics that track your ROI

Referral Bee will keep track of how your referral campaign is going, and show you to-the-point, no-fluff charts showing your progress.

Is this a full reward system?

No! And intentionally so. The decision to implement a full reward system should not be made lightly. Once you turn on a reward system it is very difficult to remove or change without annoying your customer base. A reward system also has to be integrated into all of your marketing and can have significant tax consequences due to points accrual. With Referral Bee, just turn it on and let it go. You can always turn it off if it isn't working for you (and still honor the outstanding activity).

Awesome app!

I have been sending to past customers and it resulted in immediate sales. Can’t wait to see how it performs in the future.

Definitely a keeper. And top notch support as well.


I think this app lacks functionality vs. other referral apps. This app has no mechanism to introduce your existing customer base to the new referral program in one step. All this app does is send referral invitations AFTER someone completes a purchase. This greatly reduces the effectiveness of this app. If you launch a referral program, you want to do it with a big bang and sign-up as many of your existing customers as you can in one big campaign. This is where this app fails. I uninstalled it.
Edit 06/09/2018 1pm EDT: As soon as I posted this 1-star review, I got a vengeful email from ReferralBee telling me that they "report [our store] to Shopify and GDPR". Beware, these guys are acting in bad faith and don't shy away from libel and false allegations just get even with a 1-star reviewer. In my view these are very unethical and questionable tactics that have no place in the app store.


We've used this on another store and now adding it to our second. Support from the team is second to none. We also use their other app Hypervisual. It is not often that you find app developers that care about the little things and take such good care of their customers. Best part is that the apps are just simple to use. And work. Very well.


Great app. Automates the referral process and also creates a unique landing page without much work. We slightly modified the defaults but were up and running in about 5 minutes.

We also run a robust email marketing system and this fits right in without disrupting our other flows.

Definitely recommended!
