Hi,

 

Is there a way I can apply a fixed discount (or percentage) together with free shipping? Or any workaround?

 

Thanks

Does anyone read more than the last post? Shopify are not reading or actioning this topic. There is no vote mechanism. It's a 3 year old topic. The only way to get through to them is to complain on their social platforms maybe they will listen then!!!

Just wanted to throw my vote on this feature as well.

 

Also, waxing philosophic... on feature requests like this where clearly a ton of folks want it (31 pages and counting of requests) it makes me wonder:

1. Is this the thing that prevents platforms like Shopify become more popular?  Or conversely
2. Is this actually some key of business - not implementing features that folks want - but that don't make the business any additional revenue/cash-flow.  


I'm guessing that the negative impact to Shopify's bottom line isn't big (i.e. customers won't leave or not-sign-up because of this, so 1 really isn't true) and that 2 is actually why this doesn't exist - implementing this doesn't make Shopify any more money, it just makes Shopify's customers lives a little better and this isn't a functionality that would cause a customer to leave Shopify, so then it just likely will never be implemented because:
a. There are things Shopify can implement with the same developer time that will make them money and
b. They expect to not lose a substantial number of (existing or new/potential) customers because of this limitation.  

So with that analysis, I'm guessing this will never happen.  Unless someone in Shopify reads this and says: "You know what?  Let's just crank this out as it will make so many customers happy!  Happy New Year, 31 pages of Shopify customers needing this!"

Cheers,

Brandon

Why is this still not done?

Couldn’t agree more. Between this and  the fact that you have to buy an app to do the most basic things I’m considering switching my POS system.   To do an exchange in store it’s a 5 minute process and god for big the customer doesn’t have their phone on them to get the email for store credit. It’s a nightmare. Shopify should really take this seriously bc it rooks will realize paying a little more IS worth it once you start adding up all the costs.

As far as I know, this is possible with Shopify Plus and some custom code during checkout. 

 

However, Shopify Plus is very expensive, which is probably the reason that this basic functionality isn't built into their core product. It's forcing people to jump into Shopify Plus...

You said shopify plus does this? How? Did you get it to work? I need this feature as well.

Shopify + still does not support this functionality. Absolutely ridiculous for a company of this size to have completely ignored this feature request for so many years.

From memory this was possible in Shopify+ using Flow rules.
It's been awhile since I've used the plus system so not sure if it's still possible though.

This is absolutely needed. Please add my vote. We have Shopify Plus, and we can't do it. People have been begging for this feature for three years? Wow.

Trevor,

 

I'm wanting to create gift certificates to give away at a conference Apr. 1-2, 2022. How can I offer a discount with free shipping?

I also need to combine free shipping with a discount code. This is to sell to our employees. We want them to be able to order online and pick up the merch from the office. No need for shipping and we want to give them a % discount on the products.

I hope so! However, it doesn't make sense for your answer to be labeled as an accepted solution until the feature is rolled out. Right?

Also in my signature for easy access across the site 😉
