How can I apply a site-wide discount easily?

Hey guys!

 

I am looking for an app or way to apply a store wide 20% discount, that also displays on all pages (like how the "compare at" price does).

 

I'm trying to avoid going into all products and changing the "compare at" prices.

 

The app or method also needs to be free or have a free option!

Thanks,
Justin

Hey WholesomeBoy,

 

You can certainly set a site-wide automatic discount code for 20% off, but it wouldn't tell your customers by default -- you'd need to manually add messaging somewhere on your site (usually the 'announcement bar' at the top of the site is a good place to put it).

Admin > Discounts > Create Discount > Amount off order > select "automatic discount" > put in your name & percentage > save changes.

Almost all themes have an 'announcement bar' built into them, but if your theme doesn't, you can always add the Hextom Quick Announcement Bar app (https://apps.shopify.com/quick-announcement-bar-always-keep-your-customers-informed) to gain this functionality. 

 

If you want the message to appear on the product page (rather than being a message across the top of the site), you can also try adding a 'text' section to your "product information". 

 

Admin > Online Store  > Themes > Customize > go to a product page within the theme editor > click into "Product information" on the left hand menu > add block > text > put in your message about the discount > drag-and-drop it to the position you want > save changes.

I hope the above helps point you in the right direction! 🙂

Stephen

Hi there!

 

If using a banner to communicate the store-wide discount is good for you I would also recommend giving Checkout Links a look!

 

You can create storefront links that will automatically apply any kind of discount (or free gifts) together with a banner mentioning your promotion.

 

This also doesn't use discount codes so you don't have to worry about your discount code leaking, the discount will be tied to the link you send out to your customers.
