Click "Add Promo Code Tracking" button:
Type in the name of the coupon that you created in your shopping cart, select the corresponding user and then select the referral program:
Now that you have added the coupon code, you will need to make an update to the sales tracking code that you added to your order confirmation page. Before you update this code on the confirmation page, you will need to find out from your shopping cart provider, what is the variable name for the promo code and can that be referenced on the thank you page. If the provide this, you will need to add this to the section of your sales tracking code that is shown below:
