Discount Codes Overview & Setup in Bold Checkout

Overview

Bold Checkout allows you to create discount codes that can be used by your customers in your stores checkout page. These codes allow you to set specific conditions and requirements to allow them to be used, which helps prevent these discounts from being abused by customers.

Discount codes are commonly offered during promotional periods on your store.

With this article, we are going to go over the setup steps on how to create and manage discount codes in Bold Checkout.

 


 

Set-up

When using Bold Checkout, customers are directed through our built-in "cashier.boldcommerce.com" checkout when making their purchase. 

To create a discount code, please follow these steps:

  1. From BigCommerce's 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 using a discount code on your store, please ensure you have the toggle enabled beside the discount code in question.

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.
