Discount groups are created in Discounts to apply discounted rates to products on the storefront. Discounts can be created on your site using a specific list of products, specific variants for products, collections or the entire list of products on your store.
You can discount items that are selected in a discount group by a percentage, amount off, or by setting a fixed price for each product.
Products can be placed in multiple active discount groups and receive the best discount on the storefront, rather than receiving a stacking type of discount.
When a discount group is activated, the discount that is set in the discount group will reduce the "Price" field set for the product on the storefront using a backend connection API. The original price will not be changed at all in your Shopify admin, only on the storefront.
Note: If the Admin Price Sync feature is enabled, the price of the product set in the Shopify admin will be reduced by the discount set in the discount group when the discount group has been enabled and revert back to the original amount when the discount group is turned off.
The discounted prices of your products will be shown on your storefront on all sections, such as the product page, collection page, search page, home page, etc.
If a product is being discounted only from the connection API, a Draft Order will be used to apply the discount in the checkout page, whereas if the Admin Price Sync has been enabled, users will be directed to the Shopify checkout and a Draft Order will not be necessary.
When products are added into a discount group in Discounts, the products can be added manually one product at a time with all of the variants selected or by one variant at a time, or in bulk by selecting a collection or by selecting the entire store.
Discounts can be set by either applying a percentage base discount, set amount off the product price or by changing the product price's to a set fixed price.
If you are using a percentage based discount or a set amount off calculation type and have products that end in different cents, you can apply an override setting to have all products selected in the discount group to end at the same cent value.
