During a Sale

How to Discount Products

Shopfront offers several different options for discounting products during a sale to suit a variety of needs. Discounts can be applied on individual products or applied to an entire sale (which will then be proportionally applied across products).

Discount individual Products

  1. Once a product has been added to the sell screen, select the $ amount beside the product name
  2. You'll be presented with two discount options: Simple and Advanced
  3. For a Simple price override, enter the desired price next to New Price
    or select Advanced to be presented with a discount-type drop-down menu (continue reading for a table detailing discount types) choose the discount type and type the amount as required
  4. Select Confirm

Note: If Discounts require reason is enabled you will be prompted to choose from predetermined discount reasons, or select Other to specify a custom reason
