I’m not a web developer, so I’m glad ReferralCandy takes care of a lot of stuff for me, and I don’t have to bother my tech team or product manager about it."

    Very easy to use and install. So far we've only had one purchase from a referral but we've only had the only for a couple of weeks. Overall great app.


    excited to see how this grows. very easy to set up.


    "Per Use" pricing is a not correct. If you look at their pricing, they charge a minimum monthly fee ($15, $45, $155, $885) if you do not have enough commission to cover that fee. Not only that but ReferralCandy takes a whopping maximum 7.5% commission on referral sales.

    This is not recommended for small businesses or businesses on a tight budget.


    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.

    - 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.

    - 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!
