How To Create A Discount In Shopify

In todays video tutorial I’ll be showing you how to create a discount in Shopify. This is perfect for anyone who has a Shopify store and wants to have a sale or promotion anytime of the year. For example, buy 2 get 1 free, get 10% off, get a discount off your first purchase, etc. I recently launched my own Shopify shop with all types of online goods & creative resources for businesses and I have a promotion running for all first time customers!

If you are running a promotion that requires the customer to use a code, I highly recommend having them sign up to your email list or email newsletter in order to gain access to the discount! This will help you grow your list and stay in contact with them longer. I do this personally for my own shop and not only do they get 15% off their first purchase but they also get access to 25+ free resources inside the digital library!
