Refer a Friend for Magento 1 gives you the ability to achieve several marketing goals by means of a referral program. No way you don’t need the same perks for your Magento 2 store! Just try out Refer a Friend for Magento 2!

Fully customizable, the referral process ― while attracting newcomers to your store and securing current customers from leaving ― can be set any way possible, as long as it benefits your business. So it’s up to you to decide what can trigger the reward, how large the discount can be and how many new customers you need to increase your store profitability.


Business Value

The Referral Program extension for Magento 1 is not only easy to configure but also easy to gain benefits from, as it helps to:

  • Attract new customers;
  • Promote your store (via social media, among other things);
  • Increase conversion rate;
  • Win customer loyalty with tempting rewards.


Feature Highlights

Set up The Referral extension for Magento 1 to arrange the most productive way of your referral program activity:

  • Set up rule priority;
  • Choose the landing page for the referral link
  • Define how many referrals a customer can invite to a store  to receive the same bonus;
  • Manage the amount of bonuses manually or automatically;
  • Allow customers to track their referral as the info on logged invitees (and the amount of related bonuses) is shown at the customer area.

Involve customers into referring a friend in the following ways:

  • Via the invitation form (where they can specify the email address and invitation message);
  • Via sharing a generated link;
  • Via social media (the option implies creating a post right from the customer area in a store).

Decide the amount of reward (it can be a fixed or percentage discount) and grant it to customers for:

  • The number of referrals invited;
  • The sum they spent in a store;
  • The number of purchased items;
  • Signing-up after being invited (a single reward).

Encourage customers to use bonuses:

  • Alongside a discount code, or without it;
  • Based on the percentage of cart total;
  • After a certain amount spent in a store.
