If you rely on a lot of third parties to generate web-traffic to online pre-sales for your event, then you'll find this one extremely handy. We've put together the absolute simplest referral reporting system imaginable. Want to give it a try? Just follow these 3 basic steps:
STEP 1) Put ?referral=CODE at the end of your event URL, where "CODE" is your desired referral code (up to 16 characters). That's your secret referral link.
STEP 2) Send your referral link to your referral partners.
STEP 3) Check your transaction reports: you'll see a code under the "Referral Code" heading, and can even filter by a certain referral code to get sales totals! Pretty cool, eh?
And if step 1 was too confusing, just use the handy dandy referral code generator found at this link!
Note: Referral codes currently only work when linking to an individual event page. Our team is working on expanding the functionality, but at this time referral codes will not generate in your reporting when linking to either the venue page or all events view.
