Problem or Opportunity
if someone recommends you a great product, chances are you will search it on Google or Amazon, instead of buying it in the original online shop that sold it to your friend. For the original shop, the recommendation does not provide any economic value. Our solution helps bring the original shop back into the recommendation loop.
Solution (product or service)
For the participating shop, connection only requires installing our app from Shopify app store (in case of Shopify), or generating API access keys (WooCommerce, Shopware, Prestashop, BigCommerce, etc).
From the customer prospective - a couple of weeks after they buy something from a connected shop, they get a message: "Thanks for buying from us. If you liked what you bought, why don't you recommend it to friends, here is a link with your recommendation that you can share with one click. If they buy as well, you will get a discount code for your next purchase from us."
