Every registered user has a couple of ways to access their referral link and share it with their friends:
- My Account page - Refer a friend Tab.
- Products page - Refer a friend Tab
- Landing page - custom made with shortcode.
These options are used for the “My Account” page that every user registered with your WooCommerce site has access to. On this page, there will be a “Refer a friend” tab where the user can check their referral stats.
My Account Page Share Link - Paste the page URL that you want your users to use for sharing their referral link. Maybe you want to push a specific product, or if not, then you can just leave it empty and it will be set to the site's home page. For example, you can also create a landing page and use that page as a landing page for users coming through referral links, explaining some benefits of coming through a referral link.
Text Before - This is the text that is shown above the share icons. HTML is allowed.
If you want to have a “Refer a friend” tab on each product, go to plugin settings -> Woo Product Tab and enable this option. Click here and log in to see what it looks like. You have two options here - one is text to place above share links, and some call to action text. The other is the guest text that will show for users that are not logged in.
The logic behind this is to create a custom page that will have Refer a Friend advanced shortcode in it, which then shows both the referral link and sharing icons. You can customize this page to add some explanation to the site's visitors, as well as show rewards for sharing.
