Sometimes you have the need to check if the advocate's referrer can receive bonus on Genius Referrals. This can be done using the 'Check for bonus' action in our Control Center.
To check if the advocate's referrer can receive a bonus, go to the advocates section and search for the advocate that you want to process. If the advocate is been referred by another advocate, it will have the actions 'Check for bonus' and 'Process for bonus' available. Click on the action 'Check for bonus' to see if the advocate's referrer can receive a bonus.
On the check for bonus form, make sure to fill in the required parameters and then click on the 'Check' button.
The system will check if the advocate's referrer can receive a bonus taking into account all the rules you've specified on your referral program campaign. This action is just a simulation of the action 'Process for bonus' and it will not give a bonus to the advocate. The parameters to fill in are the following:
- Reference: The reference for this request. This can anything, you can use a timestamp, a payment id, etc. This parameter is mandatory.
- Amount of Payments: Represent the amount of payments that the advocate has made in your system. This is useful when you've set up a restriction for the amount of payments in your referral marketing campaign. This parameter is optional.
- Payment Amount: Represent the payment amount that the advocate has made in your system. This is useful when you've set up your marketing campaign based on percentage. This parameter is optional but if the campaign is based on percentage you will have to send the payment amount in order to give a bonus to the advocate.
When the advocate's referrer can receive a bonus, you will see a 'success' on the response otherwise will see a 'fail'. The 'Trace' section will give you the insights.
