How can I offer exclusive products to customers using a referral code?

Hey all, 

I'm working on a referral program where I'd like to offer special products only for our customers who use a referral code/link. Is there a way to have a product show up in the cart automatically, or a way to set it up so only customers who enter the code have the option to add the referral gift to their cart? 

For the referring person, we'd like to offer them a different gift on their next order in the same way. Again, we don't want people to be able to buy these products in a general capacity, we just want the referring and referred person to be able to see these and add them to their carts (or have them added automatically)

Hey @dorozcosio.

Thanks for reaching out.

By default, the platform does not have a feature that would allow a product to automatically be added to a customers cart upon entering the online store. With that being said, I can definitely see the benefit for Shopify to allow you to have a referral program built into the store. I am going to provide this feedback to our developers as feedback and a suggestion.

Since we do not have a referral feature built into the platform, we can look towards using a third-party application. I went over to the Shopify App Store and picked out a few recommendations for you to take a look through. Feel more than welcome to check them out:

Alternatively, you can reach out to a Shopify Expert if you are interested in hiring an individual to assist you with creating this feature on the online store.

Let me know if you have any additional questions.
