Frequently Asked Questions

When is ReferredU’s platform launching?

The ReferredU team is working hard to ensure that you and your favorite business owners have a seamless experience on our platform. We are scheduled to launch in late 2024, and can't wait for you to join us!

Why should I make a referral?

Small businesses are the heart and soul of our communities, and they need our support now more than ever. By referring your favorite business to ReferredU, you can help them connect with potential customers and grow their business while earning rewards for yourself.

Are referrals anonymous?

All referrals made through ReferredU are completely anonymous unless you'd like to share your name with the business owner. Your privacy is important to us, and we want you to feel comfortable making referrals through our platform.

Since ReferredU hasn't launched, how will I know if my referral has been successful?

Once ReferredU launches, you'll be able to track your referrals and their success through our platform.

How can I track my referral rewards and badges?

ReferredU will have a personalized dashboard for each user, where you can track your referral rewards and badges earned. Once our platform launches, you'll be able to access this dashboard and see your progress.

My local business is not sure if they want to join ReferredU. Can I still make a referral?

Absolutely! You can make a referral for your local business and let them know about ReferredU and the benefits of joining our platform. Once we verify their business and their contact information, we'll be happy to connect with them and help them get set up on ReferredU.

Can I refer multiple businesses?

Yes, you can refer as many businesses as you'd like on ReferredU! The more businesses you refer, the more rewards and badges you can earn.

Can businesses refer themselves?

Businesses cannot refer themselves on ReferredU. Referrals must come from individuals who have had a positive experience with the business and want to recommend them to others. This is because our platform is based on authentic and genuine recommendations.
