Custom Action Updates

In oder to ensure that our custom action can track that a user has actually completed an action, we've made a couple of updates to how this action works. With browsers like Safari and Chrome Incognito (and soon regular Chrome) blocking 3rd party cookies, it has become increasingly difficult to properly track the completion of this action.

With the latest update, there are now two separate scripts you need to place on your website in order for us to track the completion of the custom action.

For example: Say you want to track a purchase on your store using the custom action. The first script is to be placed on the page you are linking the user to in order to complete the action.

The second script is to be placed on the page where the action is completed. If they are making a purchase, then this would be your shopping cart thank you page.

Hide Entries Count

If you don't want to show users how many entries they've earned on the Post-Entry screen, you can now disable this.

Simply go to:

Edit > Design > Campaign Details > Hide Post-Entry User Entries

The default setting is to always show users how many entries they've earned.

If you turn this off, we will remove the entire entries section.

Purchases App Updates

We've rolled out a series of exciting updates to the Purchases App for both Shopify and Bigcommerce stores.

1. Refer Friends

You can now give additional entries to people who refer friends that make a purchase on your store. When someone reaches the order completion page they will be able to copy and share their referral link with a friend, which will take them to your storefront. If that friend ends up making a purchase, the person who referred them will get additional entries.

In order for this feature to work, you need to:

- Add the Refer Friends action under Edit > Post-Entry: Social Actions

- Install the new code snippet we have provided under the Install tab on your campaign.

2. Show Entries in User Accounts

Previously you could only show users how many entries they earned once they reached the order completion page. You can now show users how many entries they have in your promotion when they login to their account through Shopify or Bigcommerce. We've added new installation code that you will need to add to your store to support this. When a user logs into their account on your store, our widget will appear showing them their entries, as well as any social actions you've added to your promotion that they can complete for additional entries.

3. Add Bonus Entries to All Products

Sometimes you may want to apply bonus entries to all products or certain products and it takes too long to do it one by one. You can now apply the same amount of entries to all products, or specific products in your search query.

4. Sort products

You can now sort your products by All Products, Selected Products, or Unselected products. This makes it easier to quickly see what products you have selected to qualify for your promotion instead of having to scroll through pages of products.
