Here's what we're covering:
- What a Referred Friend reward is
- How to set a Referred Friend reward
Note: a default Referred Friend reward of $5 is automatically set up upon activating a Smile referral program. To customize your Friend reward, you must first delete the existing Friend reward, then add a new one by clicking the 'change' button for the reward on this page.
Friend rewards are issued to new customers who receive a referral code from an existing program member.
These rewards can be redeemed on the new customer's first purchase.
To set up your program's Friend reward, select Change in the Referred Friend Reward section of your referral program page.
You then have the choice of any of the following rewards:
- Fixed amount discount ($ off)
- Free shipping discount
- Percentage off discount
- Free product at checkout (✅ only available on Paid plans)
Note: points can’t be awarded to referral receivers because they are not yet program members. Once they become a program member, they will be able to start earning points.
