How to Create Percentage Based Discounts in Shopify

Who doesn’t love discounts?

A great campaign with discounts can be an effective way to boost up sales and get your store more online traffic.

It’s also a great way to reel in repeat buyers and keep people in the loop.

Let’s take a look at how we can set up percentage-based discounts

Step #1: Go to your Shopify Admin and click “Discounts”:













Step #2: Click “Add a discount code” at the top right corner of the screen:


Step #3: Enter the name of the “Discount code”:



Step #4: You can manually change the number of times this discount can be used by removing the default check “No Limit” and replace it with some value under the section “How many times can this discount be used?”:



If you put 10 for example, then this coupon will be used only 10 times on your store.

Step #5: Locate the section “Discount type” and choose “% Discount” from the dropdown:



Step #6: Enter your discount value in the “Take” field:


Step #7: Choose from the “off for” dropdown where the % Discount off will be applied to:


Step #8: Locate the “Date range” section and use the date selection calendar to set the begin and end date of your discount code:



Step #9: If you choose the “Never expires” option, then the discount code will be valid indefinitely:



Step #10: Click “Save discount” once you are done with adding a discount:


Your brand new discount will be displayed in the “Discounts” section in your Admin panel. You can send this discount through an email campaign, display the code through flyers, or send the code via snail mail.

All your customers have to do is enter the code at checkout to get their discount.
