Sophia here from Shopify. I can see that setting a collection on sale rather than going item by item would be more efficient, regardless of collection size. I've broken down the options here for both Point of Sale and Online Store price management.
Currently, automatic discounts and BXGY discount codes aren't available for Shopify POS. However, you will have the option to add either a fixed value or percentage line-item discount or a whole cart discount as a manual action during POS checkout.
The all-new Shopify POS was built to accommodate new features over time, so while I can't guarantee which features will be added and when, I'm happy to ensure that our developers are aware of this request. Let me know if there's anything specific about your current process and experience with Shopify POS that you'd like me to share with our developers for consideration of future updates. In the meantime, you can keep an eye on the changelog and our monthly What's new at Shopify webinars on Shopify Compass.
For the Online Store, you can create an automatic discount or a discount code for an entire collection rather than having to change the price for each item. An added benefit of the discount method is that you can set a start and end date for the sale, so you won't have to reset the prices manually afterwards.
Changing the compare at price is done manually in the admin, though one of the third-party apps for sales and discounts can automate that process for you. For example, Simple Sale allows you to set discounts for an entire collection when you enter a sale percentage.
Sophia, This is typical Shopify rape and purge.
Monthly service $79.00
PRO Service (basically for returns) $89.00 Monthly
That's $168 Monthly
Now you expect me to spend another $10 for a service that YOU (Shopify) should be providing.
Will Shopify Discount my monthly service fee for use of an app that they forgot to put into there system?
I appreciate your concern in adding a paid app for this functionality. To clarify, the Simple Sale app was suggested as one potential solution, but you're by no means required to use it.
These are the options currently available in the POS app or admin at no additional cost:
POS & Online Store: change the compare at price for products on the product details page or in the bulk editor
This request has been submitted to our developers for consideration as a built-in feature. As I mentioned previously, the changelog and our monthly What's new at Shopify webinars on Shopify Compass will keep you updated on feature releases, so feel free to bookmark those resources for your reference. If there are any other specific details about your current process and experience with Shopify POS that you'd like me to share with our developers, please let me know.
This is an accepted solution.
I'm updating this thread to share that automatic discounts for POS Pro are available as of February 8, 2021. You can find all the details here:
Hello Sophia, Clearly you have never been in retail before. But customers tend to respond to visual discounts rather than calculated discounts.
A sale at 50% off
$69 dollars visually with a discount code still shows $69.
$69 dollars with discount applied shows $34.50
Customers will buy more with the idea that they are buying only $34.50
Just like $69 is more appealing than $70
