With the Shop app, you have the ability to offer promotional codes that provide discounts on products. You can define which products these discounts may be applied to, how many times they can be used, and the calendar period in which they are valid.
These promo codes can be created so they can be used globally across all Shop Stores and the Shop shopping cart check out form or they can be created to be used with one specific Store.
To create a promotional code that is specific to an individual store:
- Open the Store for which you wish to create the Promo Code
- Click the Products tab
- Scroll down to the Promo Codes section
- Click Add Promo Code at the bottom right of the Promo Codes table. NOTE: The Add Promo Code button will not appear until the Store has been saved initially. If it hasn't appeared, click Apply for the Store. This will save the store and allow you to add promo codes.
- For Name, enter the name you wish to give to this promo code. This will be for internal purposes only and not displayed to visitors.
- For Code, enter the character string to be used by visitors. Promo codes are case-insensitive and should contain only numbers and letters with no spaces.
- For Products, select one or multiple products to which you want to allow the promo code to be applied
- For Description, enter an internal description for your purposes. This will be for internal purposes only and not displayed to visitors.
- For Published, select Yes, if you wish the promo code to be available
- For Discount, enter the numeric value per product the promo code provides and select either "$" or "%" from the picklist to the right to identify that numeric value as a percentage or dollar value
- For QTY Available, enter the maximum number of products to which you wish to allow this promo code applied
- For Begin Date, enter the date at which this promo code will become valid
- For End Date, enter the date at which this promo code ceases to be valid
- Click Save
- If you wish to add another promotional code, repeat this process
Adding multiple promo codes for a single product
You may add multiple promo codes for a single product and these can be applied to the same products in a single store, if you wish to offer different discounts per visitor through different codes. Only one code may be applied per order and that code will be applied to all products in the order that match the product(s) you select for the promo code.
