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

Setting Up a Static Volusion Coupon Code for Referrals

Step 1: Follow these instructions to create a coupon code in Volusion. Volusion 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 Volusion, 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 Volusion 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 Volusion

The next step in setting up Referral Rock to work with Volusion 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. 

  1. Navigate to your Volusion Dashboard.
  2. Click Design > Site Content and scroll down until you find Article ID #130. Ensure it has the Spot Key set to ROI_Javascripts.
  3. Click on the article ID number and then click the HTML editor icon for the Article Body.
  4. Enter your Volusion Event Script (example below) in the box.
  5. Click Save.
If you cannot find Article ID #130 or it does not have ROI_Javascripts set as the Spot Key, follow the steps outlined in this article to search for the correct article.

Volusion Example Event Script

          var rrClientNamespace = (
              rrAppsettings = {
                  mode: "conversion",
                  debug: "false"
              rrParameters = {
                  externalidentifier: Order[0],
                  email: Order[9],
                  amount: Order[2]

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.
