How To Create A Discount For A Standard Offer Checkout
How to create a Standard Discount for a Standard Checkout
There are 2 different ways to create a discount, you can either create it within the checkout itself under Offer > Discount section or you can go to Profile > Settings > Discounts. Here we have listed the steps to create the discount from inside the checkout. the other method will be covered later in the article when we will discuss the subscription discount.
Step 1: Go to Offer > Discounts
To add the discount to your checkout go to Offer > Checkout option as you see in the below screenshot.
Step 2: Add or Select the discount
- Click the "Add New" link to create a brand new discount code
- Type in the coupon code
Select the type of discount, the options are Fixed Amount or Percentage
If you decide to offer a fixed amount, you need to specify the amount of the discount.
Step 3: Set the Expiry for the Discount (Optional)
- Turn on the toggle button to enable the expiry feature
Check the box for the expiry option you want to use
Once you enable the Expiration Date option you can click into the Expiration Date field to see the calendar
Select the expiry date and time
Select the checkbox for "Number of Use" to define how many times the coupon code can be used by the total number of customers. In this use case, I want the promo code to be used by the first 50 customers only
If you want to prevent the customers to use the promo code multiple times, you can enable the checkbox for "Limit discount to one order per customer" option
Once you click the "Save" button the customer will be able to use that coupon code on the checkout.
See the preview of the checkout where your customers will use the promo code
Once the customer adds the coupon code and clicks the Apply button the discount will be applied. The promo code will also display on the checkout.
If you don't want your users to type in the promo code on the checkout, you can go to Offers > Discounts and select the "Turn Auto Apply On" option as per this screenshot
When that feature is turned on the promo code will be added and the discount will be applied automatically...
How to Edit the Discount
Once you publish the checkout, you will not be able to edit the discount offer within the checkout itself.
To edit the discount you need to follow these steps...
- Click the profile icon on the top right corner of the page and go to Settings
- Go to Discounts and click on your offer
You can make the changes as per your need and click the Save button at the bottom
