Like many larger stores, we would like to create a storewide promotion offering a percentage discount and free shipping together in the same offer. Can this be done in Shopify? Obviously they can be offered separately as different promo codes, but this is not very flexible and does not achieve the desired end. Am I missing something obvious?
David here, Shopify Guru!
I'm afraid it is not currently possible to have 2 discounts applied to a single product/order nor is it possible to combine the free shipping and percentage discount in this way. I realize that time of year is sales season and I completely understand what you are trying to achieve so there are some workarounds using apps!
Since you are offering a storewide promotion, you could look at the Sales Rack app which allows you to batch update Prices or Compare at prices, either to a percentage or to fixed amounts. You could then create a Free Shipping discount to be used with this.
If you are only looking to offer these cheaper prices to certain customers then you could create VIP Pricing using the Customer Pricing app so that only some customers will see the sales price.
Hope that helps, feel free to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any other questions :)

If you are still looking for a solution on this, please let me know and we can get you setup. Full solution allows you to add a free shipping option when any discount is applied. Feel free to email me directly at email@example.com.
Natively, it's not currently possible to stack discount codes to offer both free shipping and discounted products. That said, I was able to find an existing feature request to have this added to your platform from other store owners who've requested the same thing. I've gone ahead and added your vote to this request to show our developers there is further interest in getting this added. Should this be something we're able to launch, then we'll make an announcement on our announcement page to keep everyone in the loop!
The app Upsell Cross‑Sell Smart Tool can help you with this:
Automatically show upsell and cross-sell products when your customers click “Add to cart” or “Checkout” to boost sales via product upsells.
Create discounted upsell and cross-sell products such as buy X get Y, get free shipping, percentage and fixed amount.
Create more opportunities to show upsell and cross-sell products to your customers to increase the value of orders and make more money.
Sorry for being a little late here. I think the article How to create free shipping discount on Shopify may help you with your problems.
Thank me later ^^
