I had decided that I wanted to launch an Affiliate program but really didn't know where to start with all of the technical issues. I can sell things - but getting it all set up was my biggest fear. I tried one program and I was so lost I was about to pull my hair out. So I did a Google Search as to which Affiliate program worked with my Shopify account. Oh My Goodness Refersion was the answer 100%. It was so simple to set up. The Support Team is amazing! The fact that they could show me how to go into Shopify and set up Vanity sites for my affiliates really added another plus. I can't say enough about this App.


Super cool app! Our shop has used it for about a year now and it has helped us build our fan base exponentially! The developers are very easy to get in contact with and are always willing to help with any questions you may have. Wish I could give Refersion 6 stars! Kid Tested, Teen Hearts approved!


So far so good! We had been looking for an affiliate tracker for a while. Refersion has all of the features we were looking for. Would like to see some more customizable featured on the sign up page, but for the most part everything is great. Erik and Shibo both were extremely helpful with all of my pain in the butt questions.


Best affiliate marketing software out there in my opinion. And much more affordable than the competition. We used to use GetAmbassador for years but when we found Refersion we swapped over in a week and haven't looked back.


This is a great app and we love using it for our Brand Ambassador program. Very easy to use and get the hang of. I would highly recommend it. Customer service / support is GREAT and they are always looking to improve the app and add new features.


The guys at Refersion are top notch, and are always there when I have a question or need. Their affiliate tracking software is also top notch....have never had any issues w/ tracking as our company has had in the past with other affiliate programs. If there ever were an issue, I trust that the guys at Refersion would make it right for us.


Have sent two emails to cancel and they haven't cancelled our account - please be careful signing up!!!!


Ran into some issues initially with the App. For whatever reason, it wouldn't track commissions when switching browsers. I did a complete restart and cache/history clear on all browsers, and then my test orders went through. Initially there was a delay in support, but after making contact, they have been very responsive. The only thing it really needs further is to be able to change the Social Media icons for simplicity on the Affiliate's end (If it's not stupid simple, they won't use it we found out), so hopefully they can customize that or enable that option for the near future and I think this will be the best affiliate App available. So far, for it's features and simplicity of integration, it's the best thing going, and the pricing seems pretty fair for what we need.


Update: the guys at refersion were kindly able to negotiate a refund from Shopify on my behalf, which I am very happy with. I would recommend the app itself based on the functionality, but would suggest users be mindful of their subscription cost etc.

I was charged the maximum tarrif for this app despite subscribing to the entry level subscription and removing the app. Both Shopify and Refersion have both been useless and neither were willing to help as they claim they do not have a refund policy... The lack of customer service from both is disgusting and I will be considering a move to another platform. Purchase/trial at your own risk.


Erik is very patient and always helping us from setting up the app to providing ongoing support. Definitely recommended! Five Stars!!
