Hi all,


Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but has anyone figured out a way to block apps like Honey from automatically scraping and/or applying discounts? It's become a big problem for us recently, and I can't seem to find anything via Google about how one could block something like this.

We handle blocking honey, tagging orders with injections and provide email alerts on when/where your coupon code leaks.

Hey @Jay_JUNKbrands, have you solved this issue for your store?

We've actually built an app to stop Honey and other coupon extensions from working.

Coupon Blocker™: Blocks auto-applying coupon extensions at your checkout.
Campaign Links™ + Scripts: Replace your coupon codes and inject offers into your pricing. No coupon codes = No leaks.
Smart Discounts™: Apply the smallest discount that gets each customer to convert - boosting AOV by net 14%.

Let me know if you'd like some more info!

I have spent a lot of time (an embarrassing amount of time) thinking about discounts and discount extensions, and how to solve the issues stores commonly face against coupon leakers that likely brought you here in the first place. Like many others here, I too have an app designed to help with this. 


As you can tell - this thread is now 4.5 years old and still getting responses.  Why? I'd say this is because this is an incredibly "hairy" problem and difficult to solve.

Free tip: Honey can be dealt with pretty much instantly by emailing them at Just make sure to email them from an email address that uses your store's domain. They will try to get you to give them an exclusive code like "Honey15". This might be useful for measuring the percentage of your audience that uses the Honey extension - though the code often spreads to other (but not all) discount extensions as well, making the data hard to understand. If you persist - they will delist your store completely from Honey.

Other extensions tend to be trickier.
