Bold Discounts & Bold Upsell Integration

  • Updated

Discounts integrates with Bold Upsell to give you the ability to create Buy One, Get One (BOGO) offers on your site.

Discounts' Duplicate & Hide feature creates duplicate, discounted versions of your store's products that are hidden from the storefront. These hidden products can be offered through Upsell when certain conditions are met. This ensures that the items cannot be purchased on their own, and that the customer must qualify for the discounted item(s) first.

Upsell allows you to set conditions for when this product is offered. You can have the hidden discounted item(s) display when a specific product is added to the cart, when the customer is checking out with certain items, or when the customer's cart is within a defined price range.

For more information on a BOGO offer using Discounts and Upsell, please see the videos below or follow along with the step-by-step setup guide.

Note: This offer type can only be created using Bold Discounts. Discounts Powered by Bold Price Rules does not create duplicate products. If you are using Discounts powered by Bold Price Rules, you can create these BOGOs using Bold Bundles.

Step 2: Verify the Discounted Products

  1. From Shopify's admin, navigate to Products.
  2. Search for the Product Name (the product you selected in Step 1) using the search bar.

You should see two products here, one at the regular price and one at the discounted price.

If you can see these two products, continue with the next steps.


Step 3: Create the Cross-Sell Offer

    Note: Product Page Pop-up is the recommended method.

  5. Select Cross-sell.
  6. Under Trigger products, select one of the two options:
    • Trigger an upsell on specific products - This option allows you to select specific products to act as the trigger product. If this option is selected, proceed to step #7.
    • Trigger an upsell on every product - This option sets all products on your store as a trigger for the offer. If this option is selected, skip to step #10.
  7. Click Choose Products and select the products or variants you'd like to trigger the offer.
  8. Click Save Selection.
  9. Optional: Enter a Trigger quantity.

    Note: This restricts the offer from showing unless your customers have that amount trigger products in the cart.

  10. Click Set an offer.
  11. Enter an offer Title and Description.
  12. Click Select Products and select your discounted hidden product.

    Note: If you are unable to find it with the search feature, select Sync Products in the top of the product selector. Close the window and try again in a few minutes.

  13. Click Save Selection.
  14. Optional: Enable the Offer options.

    Note: If you're running a true BOGO offer, we recommend leaving these options unselected.

  15. Optional: Click Set date range and enter a Start and End date.
  16. Optional: Select Set cart price and enter a Min and Max cart total.
  17. Enable the Automatically remove items from the cart if the trigger or conditions are unmet option.

    Note: This option only works if you're using discounted products created through Bold Discounts. The other options in this section are optional.

  18. Click Save Offer.

Lastly, you'll need to test and ensure the offer is working on the storefront. Follow the next steps.

  2. Click Add to Cart.
  3. Add the offer to your cart.
  4. Remove the trigger product from your cart.
