you used to have this ability, now you've taken it away.
Could you please allow a discount code on the website to be moved a decimal place?
I want to give a 3.5% discount.
Currently I can only give a 3% or a 4%.
Hi there Michael!
My name is John and I'm a Guru here at Shopify!
Thanks for taking the time to post here about your discount requirements.
I have raised a feature request for this with our product support team to let them know our merchants are looking for this feature.
We rely on merchant feedback to get an idea of what people are looking to have added to the platform in future so thanks again for letting us know about this. 🙂
Best of luck with everything here!
Is there any update on this? I made a discount a while back which used a decimal, and now I can't edit the code name because if I do I will not be able to use the decimal.
I can't create a new discount using a decimal either. This was really handy because if I want to give someone 1/3 off I could use 33.3% which I can't do. I would have thought that 33.3% (or one-third) would be popular for discounts?
This is an IMPORTANT matter and in my modest experience, should be that difficult to integrate. Why Shopify is not listening to all below requests?
PLEASE let us know if at least you are "thinking" about implementing this... Thanks.
Any update on this? its been a couple of years since this request was made and according to you "We rely on merchant feedback to get an idea of what people are looking to have added..." Seems like a lie to me right now.
Any movement on this yet? I'm in Ontario Canada and trying to do a black friday "save the tax" discount code. I need 11.5% and can't be done so I have to give 12%. Seems like a simple thing shopify. thanks!
My team figured out a bit of a workaround for this if you're only trying to discount a single product or a bunch of products that all cost the same amount of money. We have a $23.99 product that we wanted to discount down to $18.99 Which is something like a 20.842% discount. We ran into this wall where we couldn't do decimal discounts.
But we figured out you can do "fixed amount" and also "applies to" -> "specific products" and then chose our specific product. We set a $5 fixed amount and then unchecked "Only apply discount once per order". So now when people use that code, they'll get our product for the exact discount amount, even if they add multiple to the cart.
Hi Don_old - did this ever get addressed? Seem a silly little issue not to be able to use decimal places on the discount %. I could do with this as a work around for Shopify's inability to manage international selling without VAT be charged, but can't accurately mimic the reduction in price for V AT without the decimal places.
I'm new and am pretty flabergasted this is still an issue. We have been doing a rounded figure at the store to simplify purchases during Covid and now that I'm going on line, I need to eat the tax on that and therefore do a 9.75% discount. This is a virtually nonexisting coding issue, will cause no issues of mistaken usage if you pop an "are your sure" dialog for anything that is entered that is below 1. Really, great use for a spectacularly low amount of effort.
i was mystified to see this as well! it was one thing not being able to do it online, but at least we could in store. now that's gone! please correct asap!
I need to create a discount code for sales reps of 33.3%. The OP is over 2 years old. This is pretty unacceptable from a company who claims they listen to feedback from their users.
Any news on this? It's been years since the first post and no update from Shopify. This is a simple but very necessary feature.
Please let us know if there is at least an intention of implementing this functionality.
