How do you like the idea of your marketing running itself?
Enter referral programs, stage right.
Referral programs are a valuable kind of marketing where you offer your current customers a discount or incentive to share your business with friends. It’s a win-win-win situation – for a small discount, you get cheap (or sometimes free) marketing and customers get social validation for recommending something great to a friend, plus the customer is rewarded for their good deeds.

The customer/retailer relationship is all about trust. Consignment and parcel tracking is one of the most crucial parts of the ecommerce fling.
