How to add discounts?

There are two types of discounts for your products: coupon codes and sales. With these 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 
Note: all discount types currently accept only a percentage (%) off, it's not possible to set it to a specific amount of money.

General info

You can overview all your discounts at any time in the  Discounts section. There you'll find information about all discounts, number of products affected, usage stats and expiration date. There, you can edit each discount, change its name or remove it altogether.

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

To add 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 one, multiple or all products;
5. Add a coupon code that your buyers will have to enter at the checkout to get the discount. You may also set an expiration date for the discount;
6. Finally, press "Create" to make the discount instantly available to your buyers.
Note: Discount codes are NOT case sensitive, which means that the code "25OFF" will also work if written like this "25off". 

Your customers will see the coupon code field during   checkout.  
Note: The coupon code field will only be visible 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.

To run 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 (only you can see the name);
4. Choose what products should be affected by this discount. You can select one, multiple or all products, choose numerous products or only pick one product;
5. Select the discount amount in % and choose an expiration date.
6. Finally, press "Create" to make the discount instantly available to your buyers.

Note: If you run a sale for a product that previously had " Pay  what you want" pricing - the PWYW feature will be disabled for that product. You can run a sale or have the 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 by setting the price to $0.00 on the product editing page. This will automatically enable the Pay What You Want feature - that's the only way to offer free products at the moment. 
If you charge for your product, the minimum price is $0.90. It also means that product price after discount will always be at least $0.90. This minimum is set to cover the fees associated with the transaction.
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 shop, the first product price will be $50 and the price of the second product will be $0.90. For second product, initially priced $1.23, both the product page and checkout will display adjusted discount, which in this case will be 26%.
Note: When product price after discount is below the $0.90 minimum, we display adjusted discount on product page and checkout.
