Built-in discounts can't target specific cart items. Here are 2 workarounds:

  1. Discount Code: Create a 10% off code and promote it with the specific item, mentioning the discount applies when they add that item.

  2. Discount App: Explore Shopify apps for automatic discounts based on cart contents. Search for terms like "Automatic Discounts" or "Cart Upsell."   



Here's a solution for a discount code in Shopify to incentivize adding a specific item:

1. Create a Discount Code:

  • Go to your Shopify admin panel and navigate to Discounts.
  • Click Create discount.
  • Choose Discount code.
  • Enter a descriptive name (e.g., "ADDITEM10").
  • Set the Discount to 10%.
  • You can optionally set minimum order value or other restrictions (but not specific item requirement).
  • Click Save.

2. Promote the Code with the Specific Item:

  • Highlight the specific item you want to encourage purchase of.
  • Mention the discount code alongside the item (e.g., "Get 10% off with code ADDITEM10 when you add this item to your cart!").


  • Simple to set up.
  • Easy for customers to understand and redeem.

Hi Lola-Black,


If you're looking for a way to subtract 10% from the order subtotal when a specific "trigger" item is in the cart, you can try our app, Regios Automatic Discounts (4.9 stars, Built for Shopify).


Here's a screenshot of how you could set your discount up:





  1. You can use a "Check if specific products are in the cart" condition in the logic flow.
  2. Replace "Example Product 1" with whatever your "trigger" product is.
  3. Add an "Apply discount" step that applies a 10% discount.


If that product is in the cart, then the entire order subtotal will receive 10% off.


If you have any questions about this, just reply, and I'll be happy to help.
