How to Create a Post Purchase Overlay

William Harper Updated by William Harper


The Post Purchase Widget displays on the order confirmation page for all customers who complete a purchase. The main purpose of this widget is to drive awareness of your referral program. This widget is implemented using URL targeting, and with a standard implementation, is managed from the Friendbuy interface.


  1. Select 'Referral' in the left-side navigation 

  1. Select the Campaign for where the Advocate Landing Page will live.
This step assumes a campaign already exists. Should you need to create your first campaign, head here.
  1. Navigate to the 'Widgets' tab in the Campaign.

  1. Select the 'Post Purchase Overlay' tile > Click 'Select Widget' under the tiles on the right-hand side.

  1. From the flyout, select a widget style.

  1. In order for the widget to display correctly on a page, Friendbuy needs the Post Purchase URL or path to be added.

This will display on your post purchase page as soon as you hit 'Publish Changes'. Ensure you use a staging URL, test theme, or a hidden landing page to display this placement privately before your program goes live!
  1. When complete, be sure to toggle the widget to 'Is Visible' and then click 'Publish Changes'.
