Boost your sales with a referral marketing program

ReferralCandy helps you increase your sales by rewarding your customers when they refer people to your store. We give your customers a personal reward link that they can share with their friends.

Easily add a refer-a-friend program to your store

Simple to get up and running today -- no developers needed! Check out this short video that walks you through the ReferralCandy setup process.

How ReferralCandy works:

  • A customer buys something from your store

  • We send them a coupon code to share with friends

  • When their friends buy from you, the customer receives a referral reward
  • Everybody wins: your original customer gets rewarded, their friends get a discount, you make more sales and get a new customer! We do all the referral tracking, so you don't have to do anything. Here’s a more detailed example.

    It's a great app! Super easy to set up and use. Especially love the option for customers to donate their earnings as well.

    Very easy to set up and includes all needed functionality for us.

    Only one small issue — post-purchase popup widget doesn’t work with Shopify.

    We looked at a number of different apps before we chose referral candy. It is a nice setup and it is one of the most comprehensive referral apps we looked at. It also has measures in place to prevent customers from referring themselves which is a nice feature. I would definetely recommend this to my friends.

    My business runs mostly on referrals, so ReferralCandy offered a way to increase sales.

    Pros
    - It runs itself. I have many things to think about but ReferralCandy pays out regularly without me having to log in AND it recruits for you by emailing customers about the opportunity to become a referrer.
    - No setup. I just installed it and it worked.
    - Flexible pricing. All the other equivalent apps (ie affiliate apps) have pricing that increases exponentially based on volume, making all of it outside of my price range (and they often aren't transparent with it either). ReferralCandy is perfectly priced and affordable. Also easy to cancel if needed.
    - Great support. They are very active and helpful.
    - Fairly customizable. You can change the email templates, add a referrer login to your website etc.
    - They are developing new features.

    Cons
    - Currently they do not support "deep linking" (referrers sharing specific products) but the support has been communicating with me about this feature which is in development.
    - Doesn't integrate too well with Google Analytics. All referrers links become a single source. You'd have to seperately log into ReferralCandy to see where you're referrers are coming from.
    - It might be a little hard to test for the first time since you must make the referral order from a different computer than the one you created the referrer account.
    - It's not an all out affiliate program, although extremely similar. It is simplified so doesn't have the same analytic features or affiliate marketplace. In many cases this is a plus because of ease of use.

    Overall, I would highly recommend at least trying it. It works perfectly for us and we will continue to use it.

    We are using the app for almost a month now and it seems to be working just fine. Responsiveness of their support team is truly outstanding!

    Easy to set up & manages itself. Excellent marketing tool for any store!

    It has only been a month since I've signed up so I really can't tell how well the system will work for my customers. However, what I do already know are the following:

    1) The system was extremely easy to integrate into my Shopify store. No technical background required. Plus!
    2) It was easy to set up and activate my referral champaign. Double Plus!
    3) The text within the templates are customizable, unlike previous services I've used where customization was very limited. Triple Plus!

    Bonus: If you do have coding experience there is so much more you can do to incorporate your referral process using referral candy into your sales process.

    Overall, I'm very pleased thus far. I recommend Referral Candy!

    Still, not sure if it is working or not after a month of Trial, We only had one successful referral through the first month, but another free month is being offered to shopify customers so why not take advantage of it.

    We will spend more time on the campaign format etc to see if that helps

    ReferralCandy has already paid for itself in the first month of use! We are thrilled to have this resource and love seeing how our customers are networking. Customer Service was great and quick to answer all of our questions... We are still in our trial period- And if payments go out to our customers as smoothly as everything else has worked, we will be using this app for a long time. Definitely worth it!
