Thank you for sharing this workaround, @Terry_Kast! This will be extremely helpful for others looking for a similar workaround in the meantime. I understand this workaround is more labor intensive and the 'Compare at' allows for discount stacking, both aren't ideal experiences for our merchants. I want to acknowledge this and let everyone know that I’ve forwarded this request to our developers on having automatic discounts work with our POS. As a reminder, if Shopify moves forward with this feature request - you can find it in our changelog or announcements page.
Thank you for getting in touch and sharing your interest for this function. I understand you’re also looking for the automatic discounts to work with our POS. I'll go ahead and add you to the feature request; however, I’m afraid there isn’t a time frame that I can provide for a feature to be implemented. That said, if Shopify moves forward with this feature request - you will be able to find it in our changelog or announcements page.
I too think that the automatic discounts should be made available for Shopify POS. If we have a one day sale on boots (for example), we don't want to be changing prices back and forth after the sale is over. In fact, it would be very useful to be able to select which sales channel the Automatic discount would be applied to (ie: Online or instore or both). Shopify seems to forget the "Brick & Mortar Store" side of things.
Thank you for posting and we value your feedback on this. I’ve gone ahead and added both of you to the feature request. Once again, we won’t have a timeline on this; however, if Shopify moves forward with any new features, we’ll announce the updates on our changelog or announcements page.
I have to agree with others that not being able to set up a discount for specific products for a specific date range is standard with all pos systems. I really hope this is something they fix soon because applying a discount to each item is a lot for staff to remember when you have lots of products and in my case during a busy event easy to overlook and miss something. It feel like something that should be simple enough to do when it already works for online.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts and we value your feedback. I understand that having the automatic discounts work on the POS will help with your staffs workflow and I can imagine how difficult it is to remember a number of promotions. That said, I’d be happy to share this feedback as a feature request with our developers. If Shopify moves forward with this feature request - you will be able to find it in our changelog or announcements page. If you have any other questions or feedback on this topic, don’t hesitate to let me know in this thread!
This is one reason I have not switched to Shopify POS for my Clothing stores/smokeshops because I am concerned about how we will be able to run our monthly sales, black friday sales, etc. We already use shopify ecommerce, and now we would love to switch to Shopify Pos for both of our retail locations, but we have a large inventory and need to be able to have discounts ring up automatically in store when we are having a sale. I sure hope they can add this feature soon.
Thank you for joining this thread and sharing your concerns with me. We appreciate your feedback, and I understand that you need to be able to ring up discounts automatically with Shopify POS as well. That said, I’ve also included your feedback on this feature request. Though I don’t have a timeframe that I can share for this. Nonetheless, if Shopify moves forward with this feature, you will be able to find it in our changelog or announcements page. If you have any other questions or feedback, please don’t hesitate to let me know.
