When looking for the right people for your affiliate program, you may find that they are right in front of you; existing customers can make some of the best affiliates!
Best practises to convert customers to affiliates are:
Attract customer attention while they are on the website
Offer appealing affiliate commission rate
Make affiliate signup process as simple as possible
That's why we created Convert customers to affiliate feature: an effective tool to turn 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 on your shop, a Popup will be displayed on Thank you page (after checking out) to introduce the affiliate program with a message to invite them to join a win-win relationship with you.
2. After the customer clicks the button on the popup, our system will automatically create an affiliate account with an affiliate link shown immediately.
3. An Email will be sent to your customer after they click including customer’s affiliate link, account login link and default password.
Note: Popup will not be shown to customers who have already had affiliate accounts on your website.
