Coupon Code Conversion Triggers allow you to create unique coupon codes that are associated with affiliates and provide an additional way to track affiliate orders without using affiliate links. Whenever a customer places an order using an affiliate's code the affiliate will automatically be credited for that order. Coupon Code Conversion Triggers are great way to track in social media platforms where affiliate links are cumbersome or not available, such as Snapchat or Instagram.
Note: Conversion Triggers are available on the Professional and Enterprise plans.
To use Coupon Code Conversion Triggers you need to create the coupon code both in Refersion and associate it with an affiliate, and also in your e-commerce backend to ensure that is accepted during checkout.
Shopify Users Only If you are on the Shopify platform, coupon codes created in Refersion can automatically be pushed to Shopify with pre-defined rules. Goto Account>Settings and click Shopify in the left sidebar. Fill out the Shopify Discount Code Creation to automatically push your coupon code you create on Refersion to your Shopify store.
BigCommerce Users Only If you are on the BigCommerce platform, coupon codes created in Refersion can automatically be pushed to BigCommerce with predefined rules. Goto Account>Settings and click BigCommerce in the left sidebar. Fill out the BigCommerce Discount Code Creation to automatically push your coupon code you create on Refersion to your BigCommerce store.
If you haven’t provided API credentials for your store you will see the following message at the top of the screen:
Click on the “provide us with additional API Credentials” link and follow the instructions in the following screen to provide Refersion the required API access.
Affiliates can also pick their own coupon code when registering, more info here.
Please note: You cannot add a cookie limit or expiration date to your coupon codes. You'll have to do via your e-commerce backend.
