If it's enabled for that store there will be a new column that says "combines with" , and there is no longer a separate area for manual and automatic discounts . Go ahead and click into a discount and there will be a combinations section for that discount . You can see rough example of what new ui looks in the blog articles images and video https://www.shopify.com/blog/discount-combinations
Store with early access can enabled discounts to opt-in to combine discount together of in certain ways for certain classes(order discounts, product discounts, and shipping discounts).
The best discount in favor of the customer is always applied when they are shopping.
Keep in mind that keyword "certain" , this is not an everything works with anything feature, see examples in the manual and some of the limitations below .
AFAIK discounts do not automatically enable the combining feature , nor is this a store level setting, you have to set it in each individual discount.
I don't know yet if the combine status can be changed with a bulk action.
Discounts applied in favor of shoppers does mean it's VERY different than a system that favors the business in discount calculations ALWAYS do the math and ALWAYS test new discounts espcially now if they can combine.
Defined Limitations, from the manual -
Note: Currently, order discounts can't be combined with product discounts.
You can combine the following classes of discounts:
- order discounts with free shipping discounts
- product discounts (buy X get Y, money off) with free shipping discounts
- product discounts with other product discounts
The docs have a considerations section which outlines some of the limitations of what CANNOT be combined

Related Community discussions that need updating
Got excited when I saw this but apparently, it is not what I was hoping for. I wanted to "stack" discounts for my VIP customers.
I.E. They already always receive a discount on all items we offer. I wanted to be able to occasionally have a sale where they would get an additional amount off their already discounted price.
Am I right that this is not possible? I use the app Volume Boost to always give certain tagged customers the discount.
Apparently I do not have early access but just reading this thread makes me believe that it still doesn't go far enough. I need to be able to apply bulk discounts so I can introduce pricing tiers. For example: buy 10 blue widgets get 0.50p off per item, buy 20 blue widgets get £1 off per item etc.
FYI I was able to add a discount on top of the one volume boost adds. It can only be done with coupon codes and they had to add a coupon code box to the cart page I think.
I started getting error if I try to apply a discount code when automatic discount is active
Here is the error message returned:
message: "Discount code A discount has been applied to this order. You can’t add another discount."
It was possible before the 2022 summer update to apply discount code when automatic discount was active. Any chance to change how it works?
FYI, some Shopify sites are using discount code to realize free gift offer (e.g. if you spend more than xx, you can get a gift of customer's choice).
