I need to run a store-wide flat discount on all products for one month e.g. 10% off on everything in July. How do I go about globally applying a flat % discount to all items in the store? I want the customers to see the sale price when browsing the store but I want to avoid having to manually calculate and update the entire inventory with "compare at" prices and then changing the prices back manually when the sale is over. I don't want to use a discount code for customers to enter at checkout manually. Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Without having to manually change the prices (and revert them once the sale is over), and to avoid using a flat rate discount for all of your products, this app would be the best option in order to have a sale on all of your products:
This Sale Rack app allows you to effectively batch update Prices or Compare at prices, to a percentage of your choice. You will find that this app is extremely useful, and will make your job easy for you. Note that there is a 7 day free trial to make use of also.
I hope this helps you out, and whenever you have any more questions or need some help/guidance, do not hesitate to get back in contact :)
Thanks Brian. Just needed to make sure there was no built in feature in Shopify to achieve this task but using an app makes sense. I have also found this app: https://apps.shopify.com/product-discount which seems ok. It's a flat fee rather than monthly subscription so I'll evaluate both apps to compare the features. Thanks again!
Seems strange that something so easily done in your build requires apps to do instead. I mean you can already have a customer enter a code for a discount, why not just be able to do and overall 20% or something to each product in bulk?? Get with the times
I second that. It seems that every corner you take, Shopify is upselling apps to everyone, OR a Shopify expert, who aren't all actually experts, which I have unfortunately found. Too many loose ends for such a company.
I concur and second this also - upselling apps or so -called expert is getting VERY tiresome.
I am actually considering moving away from Shopify to a more up-to-date friendly interface. I'm here to create a business not to waste time and money on a plateform...
You can do it for FREE without downloading any apps.
Just go into the product tabs on your shopify click on export and click on all products to download the .csv file.
After you download the excel file edit the Variant Price with the discount rates & the Variant Compare at rate with the original price.
Save the excel file with the new prices, go back to your shopify page Products> Import> choose file, Tick on 'Overwrite any existing products that have the same product handle' & upload file.
The new discounted prices will appear next to the original prices once the file is uploaded.
