3. Optional: Install Bold Discounts features on your Shopify theme 

Bold Discounts does not require any additional code or app blocks to work on your store.  You can begin creating discounts immediately. However, if you'd like to use any of the following optional features, you must ensure they are properly installed:

  • Sales Icons - These can be applied on both your product and collection page images to highlight products that are on sale.
  • Sales Clock - This adds a countdown timer to each product that is in an discount group with a start and end date, and creates a sense of urgency for your sales.
  • Duplicate & Hide - This feature works in combination with Bold Upsell to allow you to duplicate a product on your store, discount it, hide it, and use it exclusively in an Upsell offer. This integration allows you to offer Buy One, Get One (BOGO) type deals. For more information, please visit Bold Discounts & Bold Upsell Integration.

4. Optional: Customize the Sales Icons and Sales Clock

If you have opted to install Bold Discounts' Sales Clock or Sales Icon, you can customize their appearance to better match your store and brand. For more information, please visit Customize Sales Icons & Clock with Bold Discounts.
