WooCommerce Integration Setup
EarlyParrot is able to integrate with your WooCommerce via webhooks. The flow goes like this:
- Once a new purchase happens, WooCommerce will send customer details to EarlyParrot via a webhook call. EarlyParrot requires email address, IP address, firstname and lastname.
- At soon as EarlyParrot receives a webhook call, it will add the new shopper to your referral campaign and determine via the IP address whether the purchase has been referred or not
- If the new shopper has been referred, the referrer is attributed the referral and if a milestone has been reached a reward is automatically sent out by EarlyParrot.
- The new shopper will also get invited to your referral marketing campaign to keep adding momentum to your campaign.
