Hey everyone, 


I am currently looking into referral apps and I was wondering what your experiences were with apps like yotpo, ReferralCandy, Friendbuy, smile & Rivo Rewards. Does anyone have a recommendation for me? 


You would really help me out here. 


Thanks, Oletta

Hi, @Toni2021

Thanks for reaching out in our Community forums and for sharing your concern, I’d be happy to help. 


Implementing a referral program is a great way to boost customer retention and build a community around your brand. While there are quite a few referral apps in our App Store, I recommend checking out Smile: Rewards & Loyalty and Referral Candy as both of these apps allow you to create referral programs and integrate with many email marketing apps to help you promote your campaign. Taking a look at the app descriptions, I can also see that these apps give you the ability to use post-purchase popups and emails to recruit existing customers to your referral program and send rewards automatically to customers who have made successful referrals. Both of these apps have great reviews and are quite popular. I recommend taking some time to explore both. From their respective About pages, you can also view their feature list, reviews, and screenshots, which will give you a good idea of what the app looks like.


I hope this guides you in the right direction! I'd also love to learn more about your requirements for your referral program? If you can provide me with some more information about what you're looking to accomplish, I can recommend a more tailored solution. 


I'd also love to know what other marketing tactics you are using for customer retention and promotions? 

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Hi @Toni2021 


Referral Programs are a great way to turn your customers into loyal advocates and let them represent you to new potential buyers. In general, all Loyalty & Rewards features are great tools to increase sales and conversions.


To choose the right one, I would recommend you to check reviews of each app that you are interested in on the Shopify App Store. Also, you can test an app before making a purchase. Test @Growave during the free trial period to check whether it works for you. The app contains 5 efficient marketing features that will help you with sales and traffic such as Reviews, Wishlist, Rewards & Loyalty, Social Login, a shoppable Instagram gallery on Shopify store under one dashboard.
