Add a discount

Premium feature available on paid plans

Creating discounts is easy, with a bunch of different ways to offer a break on your standard pricing. To get started, head to the Discounts area in your admin and hit the Add discount + button.

Create a code 🔤

Make the code something descriptive and fun: FREESHIPPING, SUMMERSALE, 2LEGIT2QUIT. You get the idea!

Feeling stuck? Hit the dice icon and we’ll generate a code for you.

Describe your discount 🗣️

This is the message your customers will see when they enter the code at checkout, so keep it short and to the point, like “Free shipping for spending $50 or more!”

Discount options 🤸

The discount feature is flexible, so you can:

  • Offer a percentage off the total
  • Take a fixed amount off the total
  • Limit discounts to specific items
  • Offer free shipping

All your customers need to do is enter the discount code at checkout to get the deal. This is a great tool for sparking new sales, rewarding repeat and long-time customers, or offering bulk pricing - so give it a try! 😎
