Can You Schedule Sales on Shopify?

Last updated on October 1, 2022 @ 8:08 pm

The quick answer is yes, you can schedule sales on Shopify. You can use the built in sales tools to schedule your sale in advance, and then have it start and end automatically on the days and times that you choose. This can be a great way to run a sale without having to constantly monitor it, or worry about forgetting to end the sale on time.

To schedule a sale on Shopify, first go to the “Discounts” page in your Shopify admin. From here, you can create a new discount, or edit an existing one. To create a new discount, click the “Create Discount” button.

On the next page, you’ll need to enter some basic information about your discount, such as the name of the discount and the type of discount (percentage off, fixed amount off, free shipping, etc).

PRO TIP: This is a warning note about scheduling sales on Shopify.

Shopify does not allow you to schedule sales in advance. This means that if you have a sale that you want to start on a specific date, you will need to manually set the sale live on that date. This can be a bit of a hassle, and it’s easy to forget to do it, so be sure to set a reminder for yourself!

Once you’ve entered this information, scroll down to the “Dates” section. Here, you can choose when you want your discount to start and end. Simply select the “Start date” and “End date” fields, and then use the calendar pop-ups to choose the dates that you want.

Finally, scroll down to the “Usage limits” section and decide how many times you want your discount to be used. You can set a limit of uses per customer, or a total limit for all customers combined. Once you’ve entered this information, click the “Save Discount” button at the bottom of the page.

Your sale will now be scheduled to start and end on the dates that you chose. Customers will be able to take advantage of your discount during this time period, and then the discount will expire automatically when the end date arrives.
