Are we not able to apply diffrent discounts to diffrent items while checking out? Must we have to manually type in line item discounts every time if two diffren titems have two different discounts?

Greetings, @Kmart2400.

 

Thank you for reaching out and posting this question!

 

I understand that you're looking to apply multiple discounts to different items when customers have the qualifying items in their cart. While you can combine percentage and monetary discounts for line items using the Shopify POS and giving customers multiple discounts, it's important to note that you can only apply one cart discount. Discounts like automatic discounts or discount codes applies to the entire order, therefore these types of discounts can't be stacked

 

That being said, if you really need to apply multiple discounts to the cart, then this is something that you can do through a third-party discount app. For example, Stackable Discounts allows you to stack discounts and this app is compatible with Shopify POS. If you need any help with a third-party app, the app developer is always available to assist you - you can reach out to them directly through the contact information found in the Support section of their app's page.

 

I'd love to hear more about your business! What kinds of products do you sell? Do you need to stack discounts often? What other types of discounts do you offer (eg. BOGO)?

Thank you for your reply,

 

I did download Stackable Discounts and it's not exactly what i was looking for. I just wanted to be able to line item discount individually and hit a button and choose a discount instead of manually typing a discount in for each item like you can do with Squre's POS. That would be faster check outs and less manual work going into products and adjusting items for discounts. Sometimes we want diffrent prices online and in store. Maybe one day Shopify will update the POS for this everyday simple task for retail.

We are a women's clothing boutique. We run discounts online and we can have sale racks in store with diffrent discounts and items not available online as well.

Hey, @Kmart2400.

 

Thank you for following up and sharing the additional context!

 

I can see how being able to select discounts when applying discounts on line items can be a useful feature, such as using a preset of discounts or a way to access other discounts available in the store - this would be especially useful for stores that offer different prices/sales across different sales channels and this could help reduce some of the manual work involved in the process of discounting/adjusting line items.

 

That being said, I'd be happy to pass this feedback along to our development team for future considerations. If Shopify moves forward with any changes to how discounts are applied to line items (on the Shopify POS), then we'll be sure to announce these updates and/or changes on the Shopify Changelog

 

Since your store offers different types of sales, then are you using anything to interact with customers on your store (eg. Shopify Inbox)? Do you run any ad campaigns at the moment or do you have a marketing plan prepared for your store?

We also hope that Shopify will improve how this works. We have to do a lot of manual entry as well.

Hi, @Noah_D.

 

Thank you for joining the thread!

 

I understand that you're also looking for a way to improve the way discounting works on the Shopify POS and reduce the amount of manual entry involved with the process of adjusting/discount line items.

 

That being said, I was able to gather some context from @Kmart2400  and submit them as feedback to our development team - I'd be happy to do the same for you and add any additional details that you may want to provide as well.

 

I'd love to hear more about your business! What kinds of products do you sell? Did you get a chance to see whether something like Stackable Discounts can serve as an alternate solution for your store in the mean time?

Hey, @Rahul-LMP.

 

Thank you for joining the thread.

 

I understand that being able to offer different pricing between sales channels is important to you, and I'd be happy to share this feedback as a feature request with our development team on your behalf. If Shopify moves forward with this feature, we'll be sure to announce this on the Shopify Changelog

 

That being said, I'd love to hear more about your business. What types of products are you selling? What does the pricing look like between your store and other sales channels?
