Refer A Friend for WooCommerce is a WordPress referral plugin that enables you to create a simple but powerful referral system on your website. Instead of giving money to your referrals, you are rewarding them with coupons that they can use to get discounts when buying on your website, or even free products, depending on coupon settings. You can reward their friends as well, by automatically applying cart discount once they come to the site via referral URL.

The plugin will create a unique URL for each of your WooCommerce members. The referral URL is visible under “Refer a friend” tab inside default WooCommerce “My Account” page, or product tab (if activated), or any other page where you place a shortcode.

After this, members can use that link to link to your products or pages, and every time someone purchases something through their link, you will reward them with a coupon. With the PREMIUM version, you can reward people that are being referred as well. Once they get to the cart page, a coupon that you define in the backend is automatically applied to their cart. Besides this, there is an option to give them a coupon after they make their first purchase.

Coupons are connected with WooCommerce built in coupons. This allows You to:

  • set the value of each coupon, which can be: percentage amount, fixed amount, or even % of referred person order;
  • define the type of the coupon;
  • define the minimum order; (PREMIUM only)
  • determine whether the coupon is product specific or not; (PREMIUM only)
  • set a coupon expiry date (PREMIUM only)
  • determine whether the coupon is category specific or not; (PREMIUM only)
  • compatibility with WooCommerce Subscription. Give your customers a free month( subscription period you use) when they refer someone to your site. (PREMIUM only)
  • Styled Email Templates (PREMIUM only)

Every time someone receives a coupon, it will be shown on their account page and only that individual can use it.

Fraud Prevention

We implemented fraud prevention by checking the referred person ip address, email address and street address, to be sure that there is no user with these data in the system so that only new users or users without any orders can use referral links.

Standard Scenario:

1. A registered user (User A) opens a product page and shares the product to Facebook (or any social media or email).
2. a friend of User A found the Facebook share post and clicks to open that product page.
3. his friend (User B, whatever he is a new user or an old user(you can disable for existing users)) buys the product immediately, pays for it – ie. order is marked as complete.
4. User A will get a coupon from this purchase. (his friend will not get any reward).

Reward both User A and his friend User B:

1. A registered user (User A) opens a product page and shares the product to Facebook (or any social media or email).
2. A friend (User B) found the shared post and clicks to open that product page.
3. User B adds a product to the cart and once he hit cart page, the system will automatically give them a discount (it will apply a coupon to their order, that you define in settings). Once a friend finishes buying, a new coupon is generated and sent to User A.
4. User A will get a coupon from this purchase. (both he and his friend will get the reward).
