Shopify has announced the launch of a new feature: combining discounts.
This new feature will allow your customers to use more than one discount during checkout, although only certain types of discounts can be combined. You can also decide whether you want to allow a discount to be combinable when creating a discount code. You can read more about this feature here.
What discounts can I combine with easyPoints?
easyPoints creates a Product Discount for all cart items when points are redeemed. This means that currently, you can allow point redemption to combine with:
- Shipping Discounts
Point redemption can’t be combined with certain types of discounts:
- Order Discounts (“Amount off order”)
- Product Discounts (“Amount off products” or “Buy X, get Y” Product Discount*)
* Multiple Product Discounts can’t be combined for the same item. Point redemption applies a Product Discount on all items in the cart, unless an item is excluded from point redemption (Discount Exclusion collections). As such, you can’t use an additional Product Discount unless that discount is for an item excluded from point redemption.
How do I allow a discount to work with easyPoints?
When creating a new Shipping Discount, check the box to allow discount combinations with Product Discounts. This will allow your new Shipping Discount to be used alongside points!
