With the biggest shopping season of the year upon us, hordes of customers are looking for juicy discounts.
To help you make the most of the holiday shopping bonanza, we’ve added a simple new function to Shopify that will help you reach out and pull those deal-hunters right into your store. Shareable Discount Links direct customers to your homepage and automatically apply a discount code to their cart.
Boost your holiday sales with discounts.
Discounts can be a powerful way to drive sales during the holiday season—but having to add a discount code at checkout can also get in the way of making a sale.
Discounts can be a powerful way to drive sales—but having to add a discount code at checkout can also get in the way of making a sale.
Customers need to remember or copy the code, then remember to apply it at checkout. Or customers leave their cart before buying to go looking for the code and don’t return. If customers have forgotten to enter the code, it can result in support calls, emails, and other time-consuming after-sale tasks for you.
Shareable Discount Links eliminate the need to find or enter a code, and give you an enticing invitation that you can send to customers via email, Facebook, or other social media.
Creating a Shareable Discount Link is easy and quick.
Create a new discount in your Shopify store. Apply any discount variables you think will get results. Once it’s saved, hit “Promote” to get your Shareable Discount Link. The link will take customers directly to your homepage, and the discount will be automatically applied to the right products at checkout.
Right now, Shareable Discount Links will direct customers to your homepage, but we’re working on an option where you can link directly to specific products or collection pages. For now, here’s a way you can link to specific product or collection pages manually.
Cut through the noise and command attention.
In the craziness of the holiday season, Shareable Discount Links are a simple but powerful way to cut through the clutter and send deals directly to customers. It’s just another way that we’re helping you have your best holiday season yet this year.
