Adding Discount Codes

How to generate discount codes.

Offering discounts can be a powerful marketing strategy for your mobile strategy. You can create an unlimited number of discount codes. Discount codes can be generated for a dollar value discount, a percentage discount, or a free shipping discount.

 

 

Discount codes can be added to your app on the Tapcart Dashboard.

Shopify recommends the following in their guide:

  • The discount code entry field will show during checkout only if you have active discount codes available to your customers.

  • Keep in mind, your customers cannot stack discounts. If you have a 10% off discount, they can’t also use a “free shipping” coupon. Only one discount at a time can apply to a single order.

  • You can limit discount codes to one per customer in the Usage limits section on the Add discount page.

  • If you set an expiry date for a discount, then the discount will expire at 11:59:59 PM on that day.

  • Customer groups (created by saved searches on the Customers page) are useful for sending discount codes to a select group of customers. For example, if you want to send a discount code to customers who have spent $100 or more in the last month, then you can apply filters to create a group of these select customers, export their email addresses, generate a special code, and send it to these customers only.

  • You can fully edit your discounts.

  • You can apply collection discounts in two ways: either as a fixed monetary amount applied once per order to every applicable item in a cart, or as a percentage discount applied to an entire collection. Choose the method you want in the Applies to section on the Add discount page.

  • Collections can’t hold individual product variants. If you add a product variant to a discounted collection, then the collection discount applies to every version of the product.

  • Product-specific discount codes will apply to all quantities of a product when a customer applies the discount code. For example, if a customer adds 10 of the same product, then the product specific code will discount all 10 items.

  • You can apply discount codes to a specific variant of a product. These codes will apply to all quantities of the variant in a cart.
