Discount Codes Overview & Setup in Bold Checkout

Bold Checkout allows you to create and offer discount codes that your customers can use.

You can set specific conditions / requirements on how exactly you want these discount codes to be used, as well as settings to prevent discount code abuse.

 Pro-Tip

This article is specific to Bold Checkout on BigCommerce only. Please visit the articles relevant for Shopify, WooCommerce, or commercetools here.

 


 

Setup

  1. From the BigCommerce admin, select Apps.
  2. Select Payment Options, then Discount Codes
  3. Select Create a Discount
  4. Under Step 1, enter an internal discount name.

    Note: The internal name is not public facing. The internal name is used to help you identify the discount code between others created in Bold Checkout.

  5. Under Step 2, either enter a discount code or generate a discount code key. 
  6. Under Step 3, select a discount type and if applicable, enter a discount amount. 
  7. Under Step 4, select a discount code condition (optional):
    • Use limit for discount code: Enabling this condition allows you to set a limit for the amount of times that the discount code can be used in the checkout page in total.
    • Use limit per customer: This condition allows you to restrict how many times the discount code can be used per customer on your store. 
    • Date Range: A date range can be used to set when the discount code is enabled and disabled on your store. 
  8. Select Save.

Once you are ready to go live with discount codes, please ensure you have enabled Discounts Enabled. Using the Discounts Enabled toggle allows you to either turn on all eligible discount codes on or all discount codes off. 

Note: If a discount code has a future start date, enabling the Discounts Enabled setting or toggling the discount code on will not activate the discount code in question until the start date set for the discount code has been met.
