Discount types are different ways of reducing the price of a product or service to attract customers and increase sales. There are several types of discounts, including:

  • Percentage Discount: This type of discount reduces the price of a product by a certain percentage. For example, a 20% discount on a $100 item would reduce the price to $80.

  • Fixed Amount Discount: This type of discount reduces the price of a product by a fixed dollar amount. For example, a $10 discount on a $50 item would reduce the price to $40.

  • Free Shipping Discount: This type of discount eliminates the cost of shipping for the customer. For example, a customer may receive free shipping on their order if they spend a certain amount of money.

  • Buy X Get Y Discount: This type of discount offers a free item (Y) with the purchase of another item (X). For example, a customer may receive a free t-shirt (Y) with the purchase of a pair of jeans (X).

Note: Each type of discount can be effective in different situations and for different products. You can often use a combination of these discount types to attract and retain customers.

 

4.)  Set the value of the discount depending on the type of discount you selected. For example, if you chose a percentage discount, set the percentage you want to offer (e.g. 10%, 20%, etc.). If you chose a fixed amount discount, set the dollar amount you want to offer (e.g. $5, $10, etc.).

 

Choose which products the discount will apply to. You can select "All products," "Specific categories," or "Specific products." If you choose "Specific categories" or "Specific products," you'll need to select which ones from a drop-down menu.

5.)  Set minimum requirements and usage limits for the discount. For example, you can require a minimum purchase amount to qualify for the discount, limit the number of times the discount can be used per customer, etc.
