Not strictly just a POS issue, but is there a way of setting an automatic discount off a product in the shopify admin so that when it's scanned into POS this comes off?
We have a promotion that changes each month, that is 25% off the RRP I just want to be able to set discount off the price to be automatically applied, and shown on the receipt rather than altering the discount for every item each month rather than change the price.
Hi Michael. I don't believe so. Our old cart had an "automatically apply" option to its discount codes and I hope Shopify ads the functionality at some point.
It's pretty slick. You could make the promotion, e.g. OCTOBER-2013, choose the products now, set the dates is applies, and off you go. Can use a % discount, rounded if you prefer, or a fixed amount. When the promotion starts, the app changes the price to the new computed price. When it ends, it sets the price back to the COMPARE AT price. You can even have the app tag the effected products when it runs, so you can use a smart collection that is populated with products matching the tag.
Support from Bold Apps is also excellent. We use Product Discount and Customer Pricing apps from them.
