Grow Your Business Through Referrals

A well executed referral program has been proven to boost signups by as much as 25%. Learn how Chargify’s out of the box referral feature can help your company achieve similar results.

Incentivize and Reward Referrals

A successful referral program is a two way street:

Incentivize New Customers

Provide a discount to anyone signing up through the referral code such as 10% off for 6 months or $50 off the first month.

Reward Referring Customers

Provide an account credit for the referrer such as $25 for every new signup through the customer's referral code.

Spread the Word

Communication about your referral program is key. Once enabled, every customer will receive a unique referral code that they can distribute. Sharing referral codes and instructions can be done through various mediums:

Chargify System Emails:
Use {{subscription.referral_code}} in any Chargify system email to dynamically display your customer’s unique referral code.
Third Party Email Marketing:
You can export your customer list, with referral codes, to use email marketing services like MailChimp for communication.
In-App Messaging:
Pass referral codes to systems like Intercom and use in-app messaging to promote your referral program.

Customize the Referral Workflow

Tailor the way referral codes are redeemed to match your desired workflow:

Referral URL:
Create a unique signup URL by adding ?ref=referral_code to the end of any Chargify public signup page URL.
Enter on Sign Up:
Similar to coupon codes, referral codes can be manually entered on Chargify public sign up pages when the option is enabled.
Chargify's API:
For a completely customized solution, Chargify’s API can be used to build the desired experience.
