Referral program settings

We have made Getsocio built-in referral program more flexible.

Now the referral bonus can be either a fixed amount or a percentage of the first purchase. Also now it is possible to adjust the maximum time frame between click on the referral link and the purchase (by default 30 days) when the purchase is eligible for referral bonus.

Check the "Referral program" page in admin section.

Referral program update

A referral program is a way to increase sales of an e-commerce site by sharing a fraction of profits with users who send you more buyers.
