HOw you figured out a way to do this when the coupon isn't being applied to the whole store, but to a specific collection of products or even a specific product?

Still waiting for this feature. Please add shopify. I have 1700 products. I'm not categorizing them this way to make this functionality work.

Hello! We just developed an app for excluding tags from smart collections - https://apps.shopify.com/advanced-custom-collections

 

I think this will be relevant in solving the issue as you can create a collection that combines any smart collections while excluding any products which are tagged 'sale'.  Then you can create a discount code just for this non-sale collection. Also it auto-syncs so you don't have to worry when you update or add products.

 

Please try it out and let us know your feedback!

Hey mate,

 

Use something like smart tags to do the same thing automatically. I have set it up that as soon as its a discounted product it gets added to clearance. The smart tags auto assign 'notclearance' tag to everything that isn't in this collection automatically and a 'not on clearance' collection uses that tag to generate its products.

 

I have over 3500 products and it works a treat.

 

Regards,

Ben

Hi Ben, 

Thanks for your helpful post. 

I can't figure out how to auto assign a negative condition. e.g. "auto assign 'notclearance' tag to everything that isn't in this collection automatically."

What app are you using? 

 

Thanks so much for your time, 

Jonathan

Do you know if there is a way to exclude variants within a product?  We have a necklace that comes in a few colors and only some of the colors are on sale.

So, I may be missing something, but I have solved this by creating x2 tags : Discount-YES & Discount - NO 

Then tag all products with one or the other

then create 2 Collections (which are hidden on site - eg. not in any navigation) called Discount Yes & Discount NO (and set auto to include by the correct tag)

Set discount codes to Applies to Collection Discount YES

 

that's it

Why can't you just turn off all of your other coupon codes during the sale?
