Discount codes

Sellfy allows you to create 2 types of discounts for your products: coupon codes and sales. You can offer a specific discount on one of your items, issue a discount on multiple products or create a discount for all products in your store.

Please note that all discount types currently accept only a percentage off.

General info

You can overview all your discounts at any time in the  Discounts section. This is where you can find information about all discounts, number of products affected, usage stats and expiration date. From this screen, you can edit individual discount, change its name or remove discount completely.

Discount names are private (only you can see them) and can be used to categorize discounts by theme.

Adding a coupon code

1. Log into your Sellfy account and click  Discounts in the left sidebar. 
2. Click the Add new discount button and select Coupon.
3. Create a unique name for your discount. 
4. Choose what products should be affected by this discount. You can select all products, choose multiple products or only pick one product. 
5. Add coupon code that your buyers will have to enter to get the discount. Select the discount amount in % and choose an expiration date.

Make sure the customers know that they need to enter the code exactly as you have written it. For example, if the code is 25OFF but the customer enters 25off, it won't work.

6. Finally, press 'Create’ to make the discount instantly available to your buyers.

Your customers will see the coupon code field during checkout. 

The coupon code field will only show at the checkout for items that have an active discount. To remove the coupon code field from the checkout, remove the discount for that item.

Running a sale

1. Log into your Sellfy account and click  Discounts in the left sidebar.
2. Click the Add new discount button and select Sale.
3. Create a unique name for your discount.

5. Select the discount amount in % and choose an expiration date.
6. Finally, press 'Create’ to make the discount instantly available to your buyers.

If you run a sale for a product that previously had Pay what you want pricing - pwyw will be disabled. You can run a sale or have a pay what you want pricing - but not both.

Discount prioritization

Your products can have multiple discounts enabled at one time. The discounts do not sum up. Discounts are prioritized based on their position in the list below (the higher the discount type appears in the list, the higher the priority):
1. Coupon code 
2. Sale for specific product
3. Sale of all products
For example, you might have a 10% sale on one of your products and a 25% off coupon code on all your products. If your customer enters coupon code during checkout, he will receive 25% off original price.

Minimum product price & adjusted discount

You can offer products for free on Sellfy. Yet if you charge for your product, the minimum price is $0.90. This also means that product price after discount will always be at least $0.90.
For example, you have two products in your store, one priced $100 and other priced $1.23. If you enable a 50% sale for all items in your store, the first product price will be $50 and the price of the second product will be $0.90. For second product, originally priced $1.23, both the product page and checkout will display adjusted discount, which in this case will be 26%.

When product price after discount is below the $0.90 minimum, we display adjusted discount on product page and checkout.
