Discounts are a great way to encourage customers to buy from your shop. You can offer discounts for a variety of reasons, such as customer loyalty, seasonal promotions, or to clear old inventory.

There are a few different ways to offer discounts in Shopify. You can offer percentage-based discounts, fixed-amount discounts, or free shipping.

You can also offer discounts to specific customers or groups of customers.

To offer a discount:

  • From your Shopify admin, go to Discounts. Click Create discount.
  • From the Discount type drop-down menu, choose the type of discount you want to offer.
  • In the Discount value field, enter the value of the discount.
  • For percentage-based and fixed-amount discounts, enter the maximum amount that the discount can be applied to in the Discount usage limit per customer. For example, if you enter 100, then the discount can be applied to an order with a total of up to $100.

To offer a free shipping discount:

  • From your Shopify admin, go to Discounts.
  • From the Discount type drop-down menu, choose “Free shipping”
  • In the Discount value section, select which countries you want the free shipping discount to apply to.
  • If you want to offer free shipping on all orders, then select “All countries”. Otherwise, select specific countries from the list.

Note {This is optional} : If you have multiple locations set up in your shop and you’re offering free shipping for specific countries, then make sure that you have a location set up for each of those countries. Otherwise, customers might see an error message when they try to checkout.

PRO TIP: If you are planning to apply a discount on Shopify, please be aware that there are some things you need to do in order to make sure the discount is applied correctly.

1. Make sure you have the correct pricing set up in your Shopify store. The price you set for each product will be the basis for the discount, so if your prices are not accurate, the discount may not be applied correctly.

2. When creating the discount, be sure to select “Shopify” as the platform. Otherwise, the discount may not work properly.

3. Make sure to enter the exact discount code in the “Discount Code” field when creating the discount. If you do not enter the code correctly, the discount will not work.

4. Be aware that discounts cannot be applied to orders that have already been placed. If a customer has already placed an order, you will not be able to apply a discount to that order.

(Optional) In the “Requires”” section”, enter any conditions that need to be met before the customer can redeem the discount. For example, you might want to require that customers spend a certain amount of money in order to get free shipping.
