If I could refer everybody to my comment in a very similar thread: https://ecommerce.shopify.com/c/shopify-discussion/t/once-per-customer-discount-codes-still-not-avai...
My solution - replace the checkout entirely... Sounds extreme, but it works. Please read the comment and happy to answer any questions.
A small, exciting update to share: Merchants can now create discount codes that have a usage limit of one per customer.
That means that instead of creating one discount code per customer (possibly creating hundreds of thousands), merchants now only need to create one discount code and mark it as "once per customer," so that each customer can only use it once.
Thanks chap - anyone else, little bit about it here:
In the Limit per customer section, check 1 use only to limit the discount to one per customer
So I can see here you got the news about the newest discounting feature, which lets you limit discount codes to one per customer.
I'm hoping this solves a lot of the issues in this thread; it's been a long time coming but we're here!
Check out this doc if you have questions about the feature and how to set it up: https://docs.shopify.com/manual/products/discount-codes/create-discount-codes
Feel free to post here if you still have questions!
I'm happy to see that Shopify finally listened to its community and implemented these discounts, but the companies community involvement (or lack thereof) was probably the worst of it.
This thread, along with the other got so out of hand that other app developers attempted to do what wasn't being done, then magically out of nowhere, we have the feature. It should have been noted a long time ago that the feature was in production and given us updates on it's progress so we we'ren't so pissed off about the lack of communication.
I feel for RPW, having spent probably hundreds of development time on it when he didn't have to and could have made a different app.
Having the features are great, but the company needs to be better at communicating features and update progress with the community to prevent these types of things from happening.
I have to agree with Josh here, especially as Shopify champions the app store (and thereby the app developers) to plug holes in core Shopify functionality. I think some devs could feel understandably frustrated.
Nonetheless, it is really great news about this feature finally being implemented, but there is definitely room for improvement when it comes to communication with the community.
@Josh & @imakeir - thanks. Thing is - I emailed asking about this feature... I made my intentions of a replacement checkout known. Nobody got back to me until the 11th hour... and then it was to say you cant release it in the app store. No hint that these problems were being worked on internally... or indeed, were near completion.
