I really like for things to be automated in my store, and I like that I can set automatic discounts. I have set up an automated discount but the products I have the discount on do not show up as a sale. Do I have to manually adjust the price on everything and have a compare to price in order for it to show as a sale? This seems very time-consuming. Does anyone know why the automatic discount code won't appear as a sale on the product, or if there is an efficient workaround for this?

This is a great question!
Our automatic discount feature has been set-up so that it applies the discount on a product automatically at checkout when conditions of the discount are met and is does not include a sales tag on the product. You can read more about setting up an automatic discount in our help doc, here: Creating automatic discounts.
If you want to show a sales tag on your products, you will need to update each product with a compare at price, to indicate the product is on sale to your customers. You can do this in bulk by following these steps:
- Login to your Shopify admin
- Click on Products
- Click on the check box on the very left to select all of your products, or you can check the boxes next to the products you want to edit
- Click on Edit Products
- Click on Add fields then click on "Compare at Price" to add this column to the bulk editor
- Add your prices into the column for each product
You can learn more about the bulk editor in our help doc here: Bulk editing products.
Let me know if that helps!
