When looking for the right people for your affiliate program, you may find that they are right in front of you. Existing customers could be the best affiliates!
Best practices to convert customers to affiliates are:
Attract customers' attention while they browse your website
Offer an appealing affiliate commission rate
Make the affiliate registration process as simple as possible
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.
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 showing up immediately.
3. An email will be sent to your customer after they click. The email includes the customer’s affiliate link, 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).
Go to Grow affiliate tools > Convert customers to affiliates > Post-purchase popup > General > switch on Active to activate that feature.
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.
You can fully customize the popup design as well as check the popup preview on the Design tab.
We've set up an email layout and content which you can fully customize. Please make sure that the emails sent to your customer contains 3 things: affiliate link, account login link and default password.
Besides the Post-purchase popup, you can enable a new feature: Convert signed up customers from your shop to affiliates.
When customers register their accounts in your shop, our system will automatically create affiliate accounts for them. They will then get a notification email their affiliate links and their affiliate log-in details.
Firstly, enable this feature and choose a program you want your customers to be in:
You will be able to customize the notification email sent to new registered customers.
Click Save changes to save your settings.
