WooCommerce

Integrating your Referral Rock program with WooCommerce is simple. We'll go step-by-step through the setup needed to provide referrals with coupons for use in your WooCommerce store and to track referral purchases.

Setting Up a Static WooCommerce Coupon Code for Referrals

Step 1: Follow these instructions to create a coupon code in WooCommerce. WooCommerce gives you plenty of options for customizing coupon code behavior in your store, so spend some time setting up the coupon just the way you want! After you save the coupon, take note of the code that you created.

Step 2: Now that you have a coupon code that works in WooCommerce, it's time to put it into Referral Rock. 

  1. In your program editor, navigate to the Referral Page and choose Landing for Referral Capture. 
  2. In Page > Layout Options, click Yes under Display a code to referral, click Static Code, and then paste your WooCommerce code into the box below. 

You'll want to spend some time customizing the landing page to make it perfect. The goal of the landing page is to give referrals a quick overview of your business, provide them with the static coupon code, and then pass them on to your store via the CTA button.


Referral Conversion Tracking in WooCommerce

The next step in setting up Referral Rock to work with WooCommerce is tracking conversions on your store. This will tell us which referral purchased from your store, the dollar value of their purchase, and who the member was that referred them so that you can reward that member. 

We suggest the popular WooCommerce Conversion Tracking plugin based on internal testing, user reviews, and the plugin's open sourced nature. 
  1. First, download the WooCommerce Conversion Tracking plugin in Wordpress.
    1. Add the plugin from within Wordpress, or download and extract the zip file and place the contents in the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation.
    2. Login to your WordPress dashboard and activate the plugin on Plugins page.
  2. Next, navigate to your WooCommerce Dashboard.
    1. Select Conversion Tracking from the menu.
    2. Turn on the Custom Integration.
    3. Add your core script and event script to the Successful Order box. Ensure that you add the script to a blank box.
    4. Hit Save.

WooCommerce Example Event Script

<script>
          var rrClientNamespace = (
              rrAppsettings = {
                  mode: "conversion",
                  debug: "false"
              },
              rrParameters = {
                  firstname: "{customer_first_name}",
                  lastname: "{customer_last_name}",
                  email: "{customer_email}",          
                  externalidentifier: "{order_number}",
                  amount: "{order_total}"
              }
          );
          </script
          
You can also use a referral update script in the successful order box if you would like to update existing referrals when they order. Generally, the {customer_email} tag is used as the referralkey_email in the update script.

Automating Referral Approval in Referral Rock

Back in Referral Rock, you'll want to ensure that referrals are automatically approved.

  1. In the Program Editor > Referral > Conversion Settings > Settings
  2. Click the Yes box under Automatically approve referral? 
  3. When you create member rewards, ensure you are using the Approved Referral Status as the event trigger for the reward.
