How to Create Automatic Discount For All Your Products on Shopify

Automatic Discount is a promotion on Shopify that allows store owners to give discounts automatically at checkout and on the cart without using any discount codes. For an automatic discount to apply correctly, your customers need to add all eligible items to their carts before they move to check out. This includes the items that they need to buy to qualify for the discount as well as the items that they get as part of the promotion.


Please be advised that you can have only one active automatic discount at any given time. Automatic discounts take precedence over discount codes, and customers can’t apply multiple discounts to a single order. Discount codes are unavailable for customers who have an automatic discount applied to their checkout.

5. Select the type of discount that you want to give to your customer. For this example, I want to give them a percentage discount.



6. Enter the discount value and choose where you want this to be applied. Let us apply a 20% discount to the entire order so that it can be applied to all of your products.



7. Set up the minimum requirements. You can either set a minimum purchase amount or set a minimum quantity of items. Let’s set a minimum quantity item of 2. 



8. Lastly is the Active Dates. Set the start and end date of your automatic discount. Let’s set this discount to be active on the 30th of May.



9. Review the automatic discount summary and once everything is final,



click the Save button on top, or the Save Discount button at the bottom.8-save-discount-ad



You should see a pop-up notice at the bottom saying that you have created an automatic discount. You will also see a green callout confirmation that you have successfully created your automatic discount.



 When your discount is active, as long as your customer meets the purchase requirements, the discount will always be applied at checkout.
