Affirm
We use Affirm with a Woocommerce/Wordpress website and there is a plugin that integrates Affirm for us. We also use a payment method plugin that limits Affirms availability only to products that they support. Generally, we have had a good experience with integration and payments from Affirm to us are consistent and timely. People finance guitars, pedals, and amplifiers and it offers us a way to reach a customer base that may not otherwise purchase from us.

ReferralCandy
ReferralCandy is overall a great tool that saves me time and money. Creating a referral program on your own is incredibly difficult and this tool allows for an automated system to send us an option to opt into the referral program. Their customer success team is very helpful and they're quick to get back to us when we have a question. We also love the ban feature when a customer abuses the referral program.

  • I would love to see a multi-tiered referral or reward system so that we can offer certain customer groups unique offers.
  • I would love a feature where you can issue a reward to a customer without them "qualifying for it".

Usability
Affirm
Easy to use, simple to integrate, especially if you are using Shopify Plus. Putting everything live and active was easy. We did have to do some simple HTML/CSS to make everything look the way that we wanted it to, but that was very easy and something that we did in house. If you can do some simple style work, you won't have any issues at all.

ReferralCandy went above and beyond when it came to the initial integration of their app with our e-commerce store. They walked us through, step by step, how to install it, and then spent time helping track down a display bug that had popped up, giving us a couple free months for our trouble even!

We have not used any payment plans before, this was the first for the company.
