Is there a common e-commerce site right now that let's you use multiple discount coupons?
I am curious because with so many discount coupon pirate sites out there, it could be fun to see how many things you can buy for free by piling on the coupons!!!
I don't know any e-commerce site that allows this (Shopify or no Shopify) — yet I always try. When I enter my second coupon code, it replaces the other one or I get an error that says a promotion is already applied. I can see why multiple discount codes is not attractive to shop-owners.
Mmm actually Sears lets you apply multiple coupon codes but there are rules... applying one code won't work in combination with another, etc. Their checkout is also complicated and their website sucks in general. They like to publish their promo codes as images too, both on their website and in newsletters, so you cannot copy and paste those 10-digit codes. Fun times all around.
Free shipping best lives as a price-based shipping rate: FREE SHIPPING ON ORDERS OVER $100.
Chances are you may not want to offer free shipping to everyone in the whole wide world either. Shipping rates are region-specific in Shopify, another reason to use a rate for it.
I want to keep this thread alive:
Friend referral is another situation in which multiple discount codes would be useful. Implimentaiton would be so easy:
1. all codes can only be used once per order
2. allow the shop owner to choose which codes can be stacked, and which cannot
3. Limit the max number to 3, so as to prevent abuse
Caroline, is this even on the roadmap? Areas where this is useful:
1. friend referral programs
2. free shipping + a discount
3. buy x, get $$ off your next order
Basically programs that are action based discounts that a customer would want to stack with a general coupon.
Just adding my 2 cents. I would like multiple discounts as well. I have a group of friends that I give a %off to, but when I have a store wide sale I have to create another discount just for them that include their regular discount plus the stores. Also a problem with my membership/discount card app which really just gives a discount code and then they can't use their friend code. I wish the membership discount would just apply to the account without having a generic discount code floating out there. Also, since someone asked about a site that takes multiples - shutterfly.
