May I Offer Coupons or Have a Sale?

Certainly! These are selling preferences you can access via your vendor dashboard.

There are four options. You can:

  • enable a storewide discount for all products;
  • enable discounts on a per product basis;
  • enable a bulk purchase discount on a per product basis; and/or
  • create discount coupons eligible for all or selected products.

How to Enable a Storewide Discount on All Products

To enable a storewide discount, head over to the main store settings section Dashboard → Settings → Store and scroll down until you see the Enable storewide discount checkbox option—tick the checkbox:

All there’s left to do now is:

  1. set a minimum total order amount required for the order to be eligible for the discount (can be left blank for no ‘minimum’ requirement); and
  2. set the percentage discount.

Remember to save the changes when finished.

How to Set a Per Product Discount (Sale Price)

To set a discount or sale price on a product, go to the Products section and select the relevant product:

In the case of our Impressively Tasty Peanuts demo product, we’re dealing with a product that has multiple variations by weight. We have 48, 64, and 96 oz. weight variations.

For variable products, you must enable the discount on a per variation basis by scrolling down to the Attribute and Variation section of the product edit page and selecting the relevant variation(s).

Below, we’re looking at the Sale price field for the 48 oz. bag. Simply input your desired sale price:

For simple, non-variable products, the Discount Price field can be found near the top of the product edit page:

On the product edit page, scroll down to the Discount Options section, tick Enable bulk discount and set the minimum order quantity and the percentage discount to deduct from eligible orders:

    1. Percentage discount
    2. Fixed cart discount
    3. Fixed product discount

  7. Optionally set an expiration date where the coupon will automatically deactivate
  8. Optionally choose if the coupon should not apply to products on sale
