The ReferralCandy team is super helpful and quick to respond. I would give 5 stars, but I think ReferralCandy could have more features for the price. Still a great product!

Mardie takes her job very seriously. She is very professional and helpful. She can always answer all our questions and she treats us with the utmost respect and does whatever is necessary to ensure we're happy and find value in their services. Easy set-up and usage and it just works! We couldn't be happier.

JC was a top support technician - we are currently using the software for an Affiliate Program only, the Advocate and Friend part of their software does not apply for what we currently need. Although the process of changing the Advocate to Affiliate was somewhat painful JC fully supported the process and walked me through step by step. Please note - ask for a ZOOM! chat if you get hung up to save yourself the frustration of dealing with emails going back and forth. I needed a ZOOM! call because the Affiliate Program isn't a turn key solution. I advised JC to ask his development team to have a full solution for these features which in my honest opinion would make for a much better experience. Thank you once again JC for all your help - you and you alone saved a customer from finding a different solution, Referral Candy management, you should reward JC for his hard work, staying on the phone after hours and providing solid technical support. I'm a geek myself and to expect your customers to do this alone is a very big mistake and should have a better solution in place and if you decide not to develop this aspect then I highly recommend for you to inform your customer reps NOT to say this can be used as an Affiliate Program - this needs better support. Thanks again JC!!
