How can I alert customers about the minimum spend for discount codes?

8 0 1

We often create Buy X Get Y Free discount types. The minimum purchase is $50.

If a customer coming in organically adds products to their cart and only has let’s say $30 at the time of checkout, is there a way to alert them to tell them how much more they need to spend to use the free discount?

Here is a scenario.

The customer comes to the website organically and starts shopping.
They add products to the shopping cart for a total of  $30.00
They click checkout and at that moment they get a message with the discount code telling them if they spend $20 more they can apply the code to get free "Y"

Is this possible?

Hi @ajmurray1234,


Thank you for reaching out to the Community! I'm happy to provide some assistance with Buy X, Get Y discounts, to ensure this gets resolved. 


To be sure customers entering the shop organically take advantage of all available discounts, I would recommend checking out the Shopify App Store. We have various discount apps available that will allow for banners and/or prompts to let customers know what they need in order to successfully apply the discount. For ease, I've gone ahead and made a few app recommendations below you can look into: 



Additionally, you can look into hiring a Shopify Expert to help customize this for your shop. Our experts are trusted third-party agencies and free lancers that work to help build your shop. For more information, you can check out our Expert Marketplace
