GUESTS AND REGISTERED MEMBERS

Referral Link or Coupon Referral

Both guests and registered users can have a referral link. This link is visible in several places:

  • “Refer a friend” tab inside the default WooCommerce "My Account" page.
  • Product Page tab (if activated).
  • Landing Page where you place one of our shortcodes.
WooCommerce Refer a Friend plugin also lets you hide the link and work only with referral coupons. In this case, the user can apply a referral coupon to the coupon field and get discount. With shortcodes, you can show all sections or some of them.

WooCommerce Refer a Friend plugin currently supports shares via Email, Facebook, X (Twitter), WhatsApp and Viber.

Multiple Looks

In our latest update to the WooCommerce Referral Plugin, we've introduced two default templates: Modern and Classic UI. You can fully customize these templates by copying them into your theme folder. This method is straightforward and similar to how you customize WooCommerce, allowing you to tailor the user experience to fit your brand’s style.

Tracking

Users can track referral coupons

Whenever a customer receives a coupon, it will be displayed on their My account page and only that individual can see it and use it. Coupons are sent to the customer via email, as well.

Since coupons are issued after the order is marked as Completed, customers can track them and see the status of friend's order.

SECURITY

Fraud prevention

Compared to other plugins, WooCommerce Refer a Friend implements several fraud prevention systems, which means that only new users or users without any orders can use referral links.

The fraud prevention system is checking if a user with one of the below options has already made an order in your store. If so, they will not be eligible for a discount.

  • IP Check.
  • Shipping address Check.
  • Email Address Check.
  • Phone Number Check.

NOTE: All fraud options can be turned off under the plugin settings.

woocommerce refer a friend referral events tracking

Referral events

Track everything

WooCommerce Refer a Friend plugin helps you track referral events. Every time one of these events happens (email share, social share, new referral order, coupon applied, coupon generated, email sent), it will be tracked and saved with all the relevant data. You can use this data to see how well your referral program is doing and determine whether it needs to be adjusted.

For example, if you see that there is a lot of referral shares, but not enough referral orders, it might be that the reward is not good enough. Or if you do not see that people are sharing their referral links, maybe you need to put it into a more visible place, or announce your referral program via email.
Data is saved in its own Table so it will not have a negative effect on the site speed.

How does WooCommerce Referral program work?

WooCommerce Refer a Friend allows both registered users and guests to generate referral links. Every time they share a link and their friends make a purchase, you are rewarding them with discount coupons.

1

Reward only advocate

  • User A shares their referral code or link with their friend via email or any social media.
  • User B clicks on the referral link and lands on a landing page or a product page that user A shared.
  • User B buys the product immediately, pays for it – i.e. the order is marked as Completed.
  • User A will get a coupon from this purchase (their friend will not get any rewards).
  • This scenario is possible with the free version of the WooCommerce Refer a Friend Light plugin, as well.
2

Reward both advocate and their friend

  • User A shares their referral code or link with their friend via email or any social media.
  • User B clicks on the referral link and lands on a landing page or a product page that user A shared.
  • User B adds a product to the cart and once they hit the cart page, the system will automatically give them a discount (it will apply a coupon to their order, one that you defined in the Settings).
  • User B buys the product immediately, pays for it – i.e. the order is marked as Completed.
  • User A will get a coupon from this purchase. (both User A and User B will get the reward).
3

Give automatic free subscription renewal

  • User A who has an active subscription (WooCommerce subscriptions plugin) shares their referral code or link with their friend via email or any social media.
  • User B clicks on the referral link and lands on a landing page or a product page that user A shared.
  • User B purchases a subscription product and gets a discount on current purchase or next renewal, if that is set up in the Settings.
  • User A will get a coupon reward from this purchase. Coupon will be automatically applied on User A's next renewal.
