According to Shopify more than half of Shopify merchants used discounts during BFCM last year, and during BFCM, orders were three times higher than on an average day in November. Discounts can be a powerful way to drive sales—but having to add a discount code at checkout can also get in the way of making a sale.
Steps to Generate Shareable Discount Links
- Goto >> Admin Panel >> Discounts
- Create a new discount in your Shopify store & Save.
- Once it’s saved, hit “Promote” to get your Shareable Discount Link.
For normal discount code customers need to remember or copy the code, then remember to apply it at checkout. Or customers leave their cart before buying to go looking for the code and don’t return. If customers have forgotten to enter the code, it can result in support calls, emails, and other time-consuming after-sale tasks for you.
Shareable Discount Links can be shared via email, Facebook, or other social media which automatically applies if customer purchase product via that link.
The shareable discount link will take customers directly to your homepage, and the discount will be automatically applied to the right products at checkout.
