Hello,

It would be great to have “Refer A Friend” as a build-in feature of Magento:

This should be able to provide a discount to those users who successfully refer another customer to the store. Administration should allows to edit the discount euro/dollar amount or percentage, and also to enter an order amount that must be spent by the referred user before granting the discount to the first user.

Many thanks.

Agreed ... possibly also a Affiliate advertising system.

Maybe it could be linked somehow with the core of the planned Gift Certificates module?

Here’s a very good Magento affiliate connector available now:

http://www.priacta.com/code/magento-affiliate/magento-post-affiliate-pro.php

In Magento Connect: http://www.magentocommerce.com/extension/930/post-affiliate-pro-connector

5 stars, Integrates PAP affiliate management directly into Magento. No code edits needed, upgrades with Magento automatically, works great. Not sure it it has a refer-a-friend, but it does support multi-tier affiliate programs.

I never liked PAP - the code is messy as well as the looks. I use iDev Affiliate.

For Refer A Friend, I’m looking at nextbee.com who have integrated with Magento before.

Affiliate marketing and Word of Mouth are two different types of channels and deserve their own approach.

Hello

FLASH / PRIVATE SALES Magento extension provides “Invite a friend” functionality in the kit (invite via e-mail, Twitter or Facebook). In addition, it will improve any magento store with a number of useful features available only for flash sales stores.
