Refersion has been a huge time saver for us!

2018-02-14

Eases the complexity of end-to-end referral programs so we don't have to think about building custom integrations for our clients.

Pros

We're using the Refersion form embedded on client sites and it's all relatively customizable to fit various brands!

Cons

The way the platform is laid out is slightly confusing as a first-time user, but I can tell they're working to fix that (half of the portal is redesigned already).

Refersion affiliate program increased our monthly revenue by 10%!

2018-07-05

Pros

Great way to get your most passionate customers and friends involved in promoting your brand. Sign up form, approval process, and Paypal payments all work well.

Therefore, we have to manually export and import our affiliates in order to send them mass emails through MailChimp.

Fine-tuning to SKU levels and to affiliate commission structures are winning points

2018-07-31

Monitoring and tracking email conversion triggers versus SKU conversion triggers.

Pros

The tracking capabilities in real time and being able to exclude certain SKUs gave us more control.

Cons

When searching for specific products to create links for them, it takes some going back and forth to the website to locate the products.

Customer Service is so helpful

2017-10-04

Pros

Even when the program or service falls short they follow-up and work through possible solutions. The customer service that backs up the App is very helpful.

Cons

Maybe a report that has affiliate details and conversion/payment details all in one.

Pricing Surprise and Data Held Hostage

2019-09-18

Their systems are smooth and work well, which is a shame because of their bait-and-switch tactics with pricing.

Pros

Easy to use, easy to set up, and the interface is clean and well organized.

Cons

The pricing model after you have reached a minimum level of conversions switches to a percent of sales and a long term contract.

I use Refersion to create affiliate links for my website and blog.

2018-03-08

Pros

I can quickly create affiliate links to products I want to discuss or feature on my website or on blog posts.

Cons

I do wish there was a built-in search feature for specific products rather than having to go to the website for the product and input that link to create an affiliate link for a specific product.
