When you connect your Stripe account to your GrowSurf campaign and enable Referral Trigger, GrowSurf will automatically detect and trigger referrals on new Stripe charges.
GrowSurf will check if the Stripe customer's email address matches a GrowSurf participant's email address. If a match is found, then a referral will trigger, giving referral credit to the referrer and unlocking any rewards, if applicable. If a referral has already been triggered (and referral credit already was awarded), then nothing else will happen because referral credit can only be awarded once.
Here's how to set up Stripe referral triggers:
Step 1: In Campaign Editor > 4. Options > Integrations, click the Connect to Stripe button
Step 2: Once connected, GrowSurf will have Referral Trigger enabled by default.
(Optional) Step 3: You can add a referral trigger hold period by toggling the Show advanced settings section.
GrowSurf will also update metadata for Stripe customers who trigger referrals.
GrowSurf Participant ID
The referred Stripe customer's participant ID
GrowSurf Participant Referred By URL
The URL of the participant who referred the Stripe customer
GrowSurf Participant Referred By Email
The email address of the participant who referred the Stripe customer
Our Stripe integration comes with a test mode that allows you to test triggering referrals without using live payments. When you toggle Test Mode on, GrowSurf will also process all test mode payments made in your Stripe account.

When testing out the Stripe Trigger Referral integration, make sure to view participants' activity logs for details that can help you troubleshoot any issues.
When a GrowSurf participant unlocks a reward, apply a coupon to a Stripe customer.
