How To Create a Discount That Applies Automatically


When you create an automatic discount, the price of your products will be discounted on the site without requiring a coupon code. In contrast, a discount coupon applies the discount at the checkout phase, requiring customers to enter a code to receive the discounted price. The advantage of an automatic discount is that you can set up promotions that show the discounted price on the site immediately.

Important Note: Please keep the following information in mind before creating any new automatic discounts:

  • Discounts will expire at 12:00 AM CST on the selected day. Keep this in mind when setting the expiration date.

  • You can create a discount for shopping cart items or for the shipping amount. Choose the option that best fits your needs.

  • If you delete a discount, it will be removed from all shopping carts (or products) that have added the coupon within 1 hour. If you want to expire a coupon quickly, deleting it is the best course of action.

  • The day after a discount expires (as long as the expiration date is still set to yesterday), at 6am CST, the coupon will be removed from any shopping carts (or products) that have the coupon added. This grace period is added to account for West Coast and Hawaii time zones, and to give customers a bit of extra time to complete their orders. After 8am CST on the following day, it is safe to change the expiration date. However, to be absolutely sure, it is recommended to delete the expired coupon and create a new one.

  • Only one coupon can be used per order, regardless of the type of coupon. Coupon codes cannot be combined with automatic discounts, and two discount coupons cannot be used together. Please keep this in mind when creating discounts for your customers.
