Generating discount links is a great way to track referral sales through a link, while also offering a discount to referred customers. A discount link is a link with a coupon code attached to it, and the coupon will automatically apply when someone reaches checkout after clicking the link.
To set this up, start by heading to the Programs tab of your merchant dashboard. Click on any existing program, or make a new one.
From within the program settings page, select the Discount Links option from the Tracking Settings section.
You can now configure the landing page of the discount links generated for affiliates (home page, product page, or collection page).
To offer a discount with the link, toggle on the "Offer discounts with the tracking links" and choose what discount you want to offer. If you keep this option disabled, the coupon codes will be generated for 0% off.
Make sure to click the Publish button to save your changes!
Here is a sample of the thank you page feature, when the discount links option is turned on:
Clicking on the link takes the customers directly to your Shopify store and any sales made using the tracking link will have a discount applied automatically at checkout.
