Showing applicable discount codes on product page

Hello

 

I am working on building a theme for my client. The store has lots of discount codes across different products which are applicable to all the customers unconditionally. The requirement here is to show the discount codes applicable for a specific product on the product page, or atleast in a seperate offers page. 

Is there any way to get the applicable discount codes for a products within the theme?

 

Thanks

Hey Manjiri, 

I'm Ann, from the team here at Shopify 🙂

That sounds like an interesting set up for sure! There are a couple things that come to mind for this. First would be adding the discount code into the product description (you can make it larger in font, a different color, etc. to make it stand out). Or you can try an announcement bar app for this. 

There are a few apps in our App Store that will create announcement bars for stores, however, in this case, you'll want to use one where you can control what pages the bar appears on. I took a quick look and I was able to find this app. It boasts that you'll have control over what page the bar will appear on, so you can just make multiple bars for specific product pages.

It's good to note that this is a third party app, meaning it wasn't created by Shopify. If you have any questions or want to double check that this will work for you before you start, your best bet will be to use the contact information listed on the app's page and reach out to their support team directly.

I hope this helps! If you have any more questions or concerns feel free to reach out to us on this thread 🙂 

Have a great one,
Ann

I have been searching for the same thing. Once you create a coupon code you should have an option to click "Show on product page" and it will show a small notification under the price or something similar.

Hey Cody, 

Thanks for the feedback! That definitely sounds like a good idea and I'll pass it along to our team for you.

That said, just so I have all the details if you're looking to post a discount code on a product page, would a good workaround be to put the product on sale? That way the customer doesn't have the extra step of inputting the discount code when they see it. You can see the steps on how to do that on this page in our Shopify Manual. 

Let me know if this does or doesn't work for you as an alternative! 

Have a great one,
Ann

Well although putting an item on "Sale" would be a work around it would be nice to still have the coupon option so the customer feels like they are actually saving money off the retail pricing vs listed "Sale" price. I know when I personally shop around I like using coupon codes because it has a sense of getting it cheaper or it could just be me...

I still wish we had a better shipping system like BigCommerce. Each product should have shipping weight, dimensions, and option for "Free Shipping" or "Combined Shipping". It is annoying to not offer free shipping on certain items that need it to sell.

Just my $0.02 to help save the planet, aka world wide web.

Hey Cody, 

Thanks so much for going into more detail with me, I really appreciate your two cents here! Both on the discounts and on the feedback about shipping. I can definitely see how adding better features to those would benefit you, and your business. I am passing this information along to our team of developers, and maybe this will be something we will be able to work on in the future. 

Again, thanks for your time, and if you have any more feedback, we always love hearing it! 

Have a great one,
Ann

Hi,

So the idea of showing the discount on the page hasn't been implemented yet right?

When you have a discount code you are given a special link that you can embed in a landing page for example so the visitor will directly have the discount applied in the cart. But when the visitor goes through the product page first he has no idea the coupon is applied and still sees the full price. A bit counterintuitive no?

How can we make the discount show directly on the product page? I have seen it asked multiple times and yet nothing done from Shopify...

Thank you,

Our client needs this as well.  It makes a big difference when shoppers can see an immediate discount.  JC Penney has a great implementation of this idea.

I'm actually part of the Bold Team so I may be a bit biased here but I think our Bold Discounts App would be perfect. You can actually just put the product on sale with no discount code and it will be clearly visible on the product page.

 

So this is what it would look like on your product listing

And on the product description page:

It makes it clear of what the discount is and the badge makes it clear that it is on sale. You can customize the badge and a bunch of other things too. The app also has a lot of other features that I think you'd find useful plus there is a free trial.

 

Check it out here.

 

Hope that helps!

It is a good idea but this is sooo antiquated to have to individually have to enter each stinking new price.  There should be a bulk way to do this.  And please do not tell me cvs way because it doesn't work.

Yeah great but ridiculous they are making us add all the apps on!

Yeah you can actually bulk add products to discount by collection, vendor and product type. You can tag products for special sales like 'deals of the day'. Here is a video covering it.

 

If you do want to try it out there is a 14-day free trial. Again, if you have questions I will do my best to help.

Was researching for the same answer and see the question is still on the table 1 year later.

 

Discount codes/prices on product pages should be standard in a platform such as Shopify.  They have the capital to invest in development.

 

The apps I have seen are USD20+ per month and this not where I wish to spend my money with Shopify.  Disappointing in short.

This should be a standard feature on Shopify.

Create a discount with option to display message on product pages that apply to discount.

I have been using a 10 year old ecommerce package that has this function

Also asking for this feature to be a core one. It's simple and very necessary.

Any update to this? A google search of the forums seems to show this is a request that has been in for years by a large number of people. I can't imagine anybody wanting discounts to be applied by "hidden" as they are now until the checkout. I suspect every single user of discount codes wants them to show up in the cart.

This REALLY needs to be a core feature. I have other shops running quite a few different carts. All those have this as a core feature. To have to pay $15-20/MO for this is ridiculous.

Hi @Kevin5801 & @joshrau,

 

Thanks for adding your feedback to this. I can definitely see how this would and can impact your business going forward. For the moment the best and most efficient way to do this is by adding an app, similar to the one @Bobby_from_Bold has mentioned in the thread above, it wouldn't be a native feature to the platform. I will add another feature request on top of the one Ann has made to let our development team know this going forward.

While I would normally 100% agree with this, I can see the use of having it hidden, especially if your suppliers have a M.A.P Policy. 
I would be nice to be able to toggle between showing the sale prices in the cart or on the page - at least at a store level, if not a product page level...

Just to add a bit, some vendors REQUIRE that we use a coupon instead of dropping the price.  Also, Google Shopping only lets you advertise items that change in the cart - either a cart price drop or coupon applied.  In either case letting customers know this on the Product Page is crucial.  Since Shopify has a Discount tool where you've already applied collections, it seems there could just be a checkbox for "Add Product Page Message" and then a box to put in the message.

Also, there should really be a field for discount Terms & Conditions in the Discount tool that would appear from a link anywhere the coupon code appears.
