The team here at Big Cartel has been hard at work, and we can no longer contain our excitement. We’re extremely proud to bring you the fruits of our labor—a powerful, new discount tool to make your promotional dreams come true.
The new discounts feature (in your admin under Promote > Discounts) gives you the ability to build a collection of unique, creative deals to reward loyal customers and entice new ones. To that end, we’ve packed this feature with a handful of highly requested goodies.
What’s new with Discounts?
- Discounts now come in three flavors: percentage off, flat-rate off, and free shipping
- Require customers spend a certain amount, or buy a certain number of products, before the discount can be applied
- Have your discount apply to the full order, only to products in a certain category, or even just to one specific product
- Give your discount a friendly name that is shown to your customers when they enter the code
- Get a random code for your discount with the push of a button (or roll of the dice)
- Specify a date when your discount can start being used, perfect for midnight sales or product releases
- Discounts can now auto-expire after a certain number of uses, or on a certain date
- You no longer need to delete discounts to expire them, and we keep a full history of your expired discounts
- Quickly share discounts with your Facebook and Twitter communities
We’ve worked our coding fingers to the bone to enable as many variations on discounts as our valiant help community could possibly request.
Mix-n-match ‘em, try new discount combinations, and check the stats to see which codes are being used, how often, and for how much longer. Released just in time for some back-to-school and fall sales, we can’t wait to see how you use your new mighty, promotion powers.
