This article outlines how to encourage sales growth by rewarding advocate referrals with free subscription time.

Prerequisites

Setup

If your payment gateway does allow for recurring amount modifications, no action is needed.  If your payment gateway does not allow for recurring amount modifications, you’ll need to turn off automatic payments.

Step 2: Go to AutomateWoo → Settings.

Step 3: Click on Refer A Friend.

Step 4: Ensure the option Use store credit on subscription renewal payments is enabled.
