That's why we created the Convert customers to affiliate feature. It's an effective tool to turn your customers into affiliates.
TIP: Create a separate program for Converted customer, you can set this program to pay with Store credit exclusively. That will help to keep your customers as loyal customers.

Post-purchase popup

New feature update: You can select the promotion method to show affiliate coupon instead of affiliate link when converted customers activate their accounts with Post-purchase popup. Please scroll down below for more information.

How it works?

1. When a customer successfully places an order from your shop, a popup will show up on the Thank you page (after checking out) to introduce your affiliate program. The popup contains a message to invite people to join a win-win affiliate program with you.
2. After the customer clicks the accept button on the popup, our system will automatically create an affiliate account with an affiliate link or affiliate coupon showing up immediately.
3. An email will be sent to your customer after they click. The email includes the customer’s affiliate link/coupon, account login link, and default password.
Note: The popup will not show up for customers who have already had affiliate accounts on your website (already are affiliates).

How to set up?

1. General settings
Go to Grow affiliate tools > Convert customers to affiliates > Post-purchase popup > General > switch on Active to activate that feature.
After that, kindly choose a promotion method to which will be shown to customers when they activate affiliate accounts on the popup. It can whether be affiliate link or affiliate coupon. In case you choose affiliate coupon as the method, please scroll down below to Post-purchase popup with coupon to read more about its setup guideline.
If you want the popup to show up only once for each customer, switch on Show only once per customer. The next time that customer places an order, the popup won’t show up whether he/she has clicked the accept button before or not.
If you want customers to be able to close the popup when they click outside of the popup area, switch on Close on background click.
Lastly, choose a program from the program list. All customers who accepted to join your affiliate program via post-checkout popup will follow the settings of this program.
