Generating a discount link for your affiliates instead of a discount code may be a great way to increase your sales through affiliates, as discount links take the customer directly to your Shopify store and apply the discount at checkout.
Here are the steps you can follow to generate a discount link for your affiliates instead of a discount code.
First, log in to your Social Snowball dashboard and navigate to the “Customize” tab.
Under the “Customize” tab, scroll down to the “Discount Code Settings” section and you will find the option to use tracking links instead of discount codes.
Click on the button to turn on the option to generate tracking links instead of discount codes. A new option will appear to include discounts with your tracking links.
When both the options “Use tracking links instead of discount codes” and “Offer discounts with the tracking links” are enabled, you will be presented with the option to adjust your discount settings. You may choose a fixed value discount or a percentage of the sale.
Turning this option on resets the contents of the “Thank you” page shown on your Shopify store whenever a sale is made.
You can add any custom messages to show on the “Thank you” page, by clicking on the “Open Editor” shown under the “Thank You Page Settings”.
Here is a sample of the thank you page shown, when the discount links option is turned on.
To the prospective affiliates, a discount link will be given. Clicking on the link takes the customers directly to your Shopify store and an appropriate discount as per your discount settings is applied to the cart.
