I am working on building a theme for my client. The store has lots of discount codes across different products which are applicable to all the customers unconditionally. The requirement here is to show the discount codes applicable for a specific product on the product page, or atleast in a seperate offers page.
Is there any way to get the applicable discount codes for a products within the theme?
I'm Ann, from the team here at Shopify :)
That sounds like an interesting set up for sure! There are a couple things that come to mind for this. First would be adding the discount code into the product description (you can make it larger in font, a different color, etc. to make it stand out). Or you can try an announcement bar app for this.
There are a few apps in our App Store that will create announcement bars for stores, however, in this case, you'll want to use one where you can control what pages the bar appears on. I took a quick look and I was able to find this app. It boasts that you'll have control over what page the bar will appear on, so you can just make multiple bars for specific product pages.
It's good to note that this is a third party app, meaning it wasn't created by Shopify. If you have any questions or want to double check that this will work for you before you start, your best bet will be to use the contact information listed on the app's page and reach out to their support team directly.
I hope this helps! If you have any more questions or concerns feel free to reach out to us on this thread :)
Have a great one,
Thanks for the feedback! That definitely sounds like a good idea and I'll pass it along to our team for you.
That said, just so I have all the details if you're looking to post a discount code on a product page, would a good workaround be to put the product on sale? That way the customer doesn't have the extra step of inputting the discount code when they see it. You can see the steps on how to do that on this page in our Shopify Manual.
Let me know if this does or doesn't work for you as an alternative!
Have a great one,
Well although putting an item on "Sale" would be a work around it would be nice to still have the coupon option so the customer feels like they are actually saving money off the retail pricing vs listed "Sale" price. I know when I personally shop around I like using coupon codes because it has a sense of getting it cheaper or it could just be me...
I still wish we had a better shipping system like BigCommerce. Each product should have shipping weight, dimensions, and option for "Free Shipping" or "Combined Shipping". It is annoying to not offer free shipping on certain items that need it to sell.
Just my $0.02 to help save the planet, aka world wide web.
Thanks so much for going into more detail with me, I really appreciate your two cents here! Both on the discounts and on the feedback about shipping. I can definitely see how adding better features to those would benefit you, and your business. I am passing this information along to our team of developers, and maybe this will be something we will be able to work on in the future.
Again, thanks for your time, and if you have any more feedback, we always love hearing it!
Have a great one,
So the idea of showing the discount on the page hasn't been implemented yet right?
When you have a discount code you are given a special link that you can embed in a landing page for example so the visitor will directly have the discount applied in the cart. But when the visitor goes through the product page first he has no idea the coupon is applied and still sees the full price. A bit counterintuitive no?
How can we make the discount show directly on the product page? I have seen it asked multiple times and yet nothing done from Shopify...
I'm actually part of the Bold Team so I may be a bit biased here but I think our Bold Discounts App would be perfect. You can actually just put the product on sale with no discount code and it will be clearly visible on the product page.
So this is what it would look like on your product listing
And on the product description page:
It makes it clear of what the discount is and the badge makes it clear that it is on sale. You can customize the badge and a bunch of other things too. The app also has a lot of other features that I think you'd find useful plus there is a free trial.
Hope that helps!
