Karen from referral candy was amazing. She answered all our questions about setting up referral candy (and we had a lot of questions!). Although not the lowest priced, the combination of features and great support won us over. Thank you Karen.

Popsockets Llc

We at PopSockets have been very happy with this app. We often have customers who ask how they can get more involved in promoting PopSockets -- it's great to have a simple automated scheme for them to do that. For a product like ours with a low price point, ReferralCandy's pricing scheme works well.

Pro tip: a drawback of ReferralCandy is that the personalized URL that a customer shares with their friends is not memorable, but one can set up a URL redirect in Shopify so that e.g. goes to Sarah's personalized referralcandy URL.


Amazing application! Boosts sales significantly! And also no words to explain how good is customer service. Simply brilliance!


So far it's been great. Bryan was a customer service whiz. I caught an error in the system with email sharing and he sent a request right away to engineering who fixed the problem right away. As a bonus, he also helped us configure our referral campaign using best practices from other clients so we're anxious to see if it will lead to an uptick in referrals. So far we're very happy with the level of care provided by them and the functionality seems great.

Phyx Asia

Superb customer service from Nicolette!
Got my referral system up in no time.
Easy integration with Shopify.
So far everything's great!


The support is out of the world. The app seems to offer pretty much everything that we are looking for. Of course, like more of these apps, you derive value over a period of time. I am really looking forward to some good results.

As a feature addition, the team could think of ways to A/B test different emails or graphics.


Excellent app and easy to use. I also like their customer support. They answer right away and their service is personalized. Highly recommended for stores big and small alike! Excited to be working with these guys!


Referral Candy is a great tool for anyone that needs to sell more on Shopify.
I got a really helpful customer service "Tippy" to help me and answer all my question right away. We have seen how this app has single-handedly increased our traffic, sales, and referrals. We would highly recommend everyone to try it because of the huge boost it gave us.


$149 a month if you want to use your own HTML templates for the emails that the app sends to customers. The standard 'free' templates are very basic with very few options. Discount code limitations mean that you can either have full automation or adequate fraud prevention, but not both. Very high fees for what is basically an automated email dispatch system.

NB: This review is from 2015, about a previous version of ReferralCandy.

Thank you for your feedback. We took your feedback into account when we updated our app:

- All plans now include access to full customization of templates. There is no need to pay more for using your own templates.
- We have also upgraded our app to be able to generate unique coupon codes. So you can have the best of both worlds: both full automation and good fraud prevention.

We hope this addresses your concerns, thanks for trying us out. - Jaime R.
