Bold Discounts PRE provides you with the flexibility of placing an entire collection of products on sale at once. This is useful if you want to create temporary "flash sales" to drive purchases of specific items.

Using Shopify's collections feature to create our list of products, we can then create a discount offer with this collection in Discounts.

To create a flash sale using Discounts, please follow these steps:


Step 1: Create a Collection

  1. From Shopify's admin, select Products.
  2. Select Collections.
  3. Select Create collection.
  4. Enter a Title.
  5. Enter a Description (optional).
  6. Under "Collection type", choose the products you want to place on sale.

    Note: You can select these products manually, or create a collection using the automated conditions. Visit Collections - Shopify for more information on how to create collections in Shopify.

  7. Under "Collection image", select Add image (optional).
  8. Select Save.


Step 2: Create a Discount Group

Follow the steps under the Create a Standard Sale dropdown and once you get to Step 4, select the collection you created earlier on your store.

Sales that are created in Discounts PRE can be edited while the discount is active or inactive. If the sale is active, after saving your changes, the sale will re-sync and apply the changes made onto the storefront.

  1. From within Discounts, select the ellipsis beside your sale.
  2. Select Edit.
  3. Adjust your sale settings accordingly.
  4. Select Save.

It is recommended to turn off the sale first before the sale is deleted to ensure that all of the discounts have been reverted on the storefront.

  1. From within Discounts PRE, select the toggle to turn off the sale.

    Note: When the sale is off, the toggle will be grey.

  2. Once the discount has finished syncing, select the ellipsis beside your sale.
  3. Select Delete.
  4. Select Yes, delete.

Discount groups cannot be rearranged within the Bold Discounts in-app admin at this time. By default, the discount groups are sorted from newest created at the top to oldest created at the bottom.

Bold Discounts PRE is able to apply sales on the storefront at a rate of roughly 250 products per second. This means that a sale with roughly 3000 products in it should take about 12 seconds to go live on the storefront.

Discounts uses a connection with Shopify's order API to ensure that your customers are charged the correct price on the site.

 Alert

If the Admin Price Sync setting is enabled, the backend prices on your store will take approximately 15 minutes per 250 variants to reflect the discounted price, however, the discounts will still be present on the storefront.

Products that are apart of multiple sales at the same time will have the best discount applied to them.

Discounts reads which rules are being applied to a specific product and chooses the largest discount to apply for the customer.

 Example
  • Product A is $20
  • Product A is in both Discount A and Discount B
  • Discount A offers a 50% discount
  • Discount B is a $5-off sale
  • Product A would have Discount A's rules applied, as your customers would receive this item for $10 instead of $15

Discounts applies its sales to your products on a cosmetic level and as a result, does not physically adjust your item prices within your Shopify admin.

Discounts will still charge your customers the correct sale price, as it uses a connection with Shopify's order API to ensure that this occurs on the site.

If the Admin Price Sync setting is enabled, this feature has the ability to change the prices for products in your store's admin. Visit Bold Discounts PRE Information & Pricing for more information on how to enable this feature.

Discounts is not currently able to dynamically add products to a collection that is already on sale.

If you add items to a collection that has an active discount, you need to edit the sale, reselect the collection, then save the sale.

Select Create a Standard Sale or Edit a Sale above for more information on creating or editing a sale within Bold Discounts PRE.
