In this guide, we'll walk you through the three phases of setting up this feature: configuring campaign settings, creating the discount code in your ecommerce software, and installing the incentive widget on your site.

Configuring Campaign Settings
In this step we'll update your campaign to include the necessary settings to setup invite rewards
Login to ICS Admin: Access your ICS admin dashboard
Navigate to the Campaign settings: Choose the campaign you want to add an "Invite Reward" to and find the "Settings" tab
Find Invite Reward settings: Look for the "Invite Reward" section under the "Offer" settings tab
Fill in the Details and Save:
Discount Code: Input the discount code you plan to offer
Discount Description: Write a brief description of what the discount entails (e.g., "20% off your first purchase")
Creating the Discount Code in Your Ecommerce Platform
To make sure the invitee can redeem their discount code, you'll have to create it in the settings of your ecommerce platform
Access Ecommerce Software: Log in to your ecommerce platform.
Navigate to Discounts/Promotions: Find the section where you can create new discount codes.
Create New Code: Enter the same code you used in the ICS settings. Configure any additional constraints as desired (e.g., expiration date, minimum value, etc.)
Save and Test: Make sure to save the new discount code and test it to ensure it works as expected
Installing the Incentive Widget
Go back to your campaign in the ICS Admin
Find the Integrations tab
Select "Incentive" Widget Type
Customize Widget as Desired: All widget customizations will work with the Incentive widget, so customize it to suit your campaign strategy. We do recommend turning on the setting for "Open When Invited" and setting the trigger to "Hidden" so only customers landing from an invite link will be able to claim the discount

Insert Code on Landing Page: If you need more help, consult the appropriate installation guide
Verify the Setup: Do a test run to confirm the widget displays as expected and that the discount codes are functioning properly
Now you're good to go!
Setting up the "Invite Reward" feature can greatly incentivize invitees to make purchases, thereby increasing conversions for your influencers and sales for your business. While the setup involves steps across different platforms, the effort is well worth the impact it can have on your campaign's success.
This feature serves as a win-win-win for you, your influencers, and the invitees, making it a valuable addition to your referral marketing strategy.
Note: This is only available using the Latest (V2) integration and isn't supported by the Legacy (V1) widget.
