Share Links overview

Share links are made available to a Referrer to provide to their friends and family to click and be directed to your referral program landing page.

The share links are segmented by Engagement Medium, which is the channel the Referrer accessed the program to be able to share their referral. For each Engagement Medium, like EMBED, a link is provided for each available Share Medium. This segmentation is used to power the SaaSquatch analytics platform to provide information about how, and where, your users are interacting with your referral program. For example, The WHATSAPP link from the MOBILE section is intended to be used to indicate to our system that the Referrer accessed the referral program from a mobile device and shared their referral with their friend using WhatsApp. More information about available Engagement Mediums and Share Mediums can be found in our success center.

Share links work by dropping a tracking cookie in the user's browser when the user clicks the link and is directed to your referral program's landing page. This cookie includes the referral code of the Referrer that shared it. Once on your website this cookie can be read using the squatch.js autofill method and is also automatically picked up by our squatch.js library to connect referrals.

The referral code is also passed along to your referral program landing page as the URL parameter rsCode. For example: http://ssqt.co/pZVp redirects to https://www.google.ca/?rsCode=JOHNDOE.
