Creating your Bottle Referral Program

You may want to give customers the option to refer their friends, family, or various people they meet to your store to help drive business. This article will show you how to set up a referral program in your Bottle dashboard.

How to set up a referral program


Step by step

  1. Access the Referral Program Settings:

    • Begin by clicking on the "Sell" tab.
    • From the "Sell" tab, access the 'referral program' option from the left side menu. This will take you to the referral settings page.
  2. Configure Referral Program Explanation:

    • Set up the first setting, which is the "Referral Program Explanation." This description will be displayed on the customer's profile to explain the referral program.
  3. Determine the Referral Reward:

    • Decide on the type of reward for the referral program. You can opt for a flat amount or a percentage of the referred customer's first purchase. For example, the referrer could get a $5 account credit or 10% of the referred customer's first order.
  4. Customize the 'Thank You' Message:

    • Set up a custom message to thank the person who shared their referral code. This message is sent each time a new customer uses their code for a first-time purchase. The message can include details like the credit amount added to their account as a thank you.
  5. Enable the Referral Program:

    • Locate the "Turn On" switch at the bottom of the settings. This switch is crucial as the referral program won't function without being activated.
  6. Save Your Changes:

    • After making the necessary edits, click "Save" at the top of the page to apply your changes.
  7. Edit the Discount for Code Users:

    • If you wish to modify what the person using the referral code gets (which usually functions like a discount code), click on "Edit Discount Type and Amount Offered."
    • You can set different options, such as matching the reward the referrer gets. For instance, both the referrer and the referee might receive $5.
  8. Restrict to First-Time Customers:

    • Ensure the setting is adjusted so the discount applies only to first-time customers.
  9. Finalize and Save Settings:

    • After completing all edits, click "Save" again to finalize the referral program setup.
