Manual referrals

What are manual referrals?

The manual referral allows you to report referrals you have made without using your referral links.
After submitting a referral manually, the app owner will review your request and approve or decline it. You will be notified of the decision.

When to use manual referrals?

Please note! You can use the manual referrals only if you are confident that a particular store has installed the app following your advice and you are a registered affiliate of this app.
If you have used the referral link, the referral will show up in the next 24h, and there is no need to report it manually.
There are two main reasons to submit a manual referral:
  • You have installed the app manually or told a merchant to do so without your affiliate link.
  • You sent the link to a merchant, It's been more than 24 hours, and you can't find your referral on the platform.

How to add a manual referral?

Go to the Referrals page and click on the "Add referral manually" button.
Fill in the form with the required data. Here is the data you will be requested to provide:
  • App name Choose the app you have referred
  • Referred store URL The full .myshopify domain of the store you have referred (ex. https://store.myshopify.com).
  • Referral date The date you made the referral
  • Additional info (optional) Add any information to help the app owner know you have made the referral.
Once you finish, hit the "Submit" button and wait for the app owner's approval.

Approving manual referrals

After an affiliate submits a manual referral, the app owner will receive a notification with the data. The app owner can review the request and decide if to approve it or not.
