Offering discounts for your Pixieset Store can be an effective way to boost sales! You can create a Coupon to offer an Amount ($) or specific Percentage (%) off, to offer giveaway items, or to provide free shipping.
To Create a Coupon:
- To create a Coupon, go to the Store Dashboard, click on Coupons > +Create New, and select the Coupon option:
- You can create different types of Coupons on the next page by selecting your Discount Type:
Percent Off: Takes a specific percentage off your client's subtotal (before shipping).
Amount Off: Takes a specific dollar amount off your client’s subtotal (before shipping).
Free Giveaway: Gives away certain items for free in your client's cart. i.e. Buy one 4 x 6 Print and Get one 4 x 6 Print for free.Free Shipping: Gives clients Free Shipping for any of the Lab-fulfillment Price Sheets (if you are using Self-Fulfillment, this will discount only the lowest cost Shipping Method you have set up).
- Next, you’ll see Options which will configure the coupon settings:
All pricesheets: this means that the discount can be applied to ALL of your collections and price sheets, with no restrictions on the product type.
Specific pricesheet: this will restrict the usage of the coupon code to specific products on a specific price sheet.
Minimum order amount: The coupon can only be applied if the order meets the minimum order amount (i.e. if you set this minimum as $100, your client cannot apply the coupon code until they have at least $100 in their Shopping Cart).
Limit Total Uses: The coupon can only be redeemed a specific number of times. You can set a limit Per Collection, or Overall.
If you set the limit to be 5 Overall, this means the code can only be used 5 times in total across all of your Collections. If you set the limit to be 5 Per Collection, this means that the coupon can be applied 5 times for every one of your Collections.
Active Dates: This coupon can be scheduled to be active and to expire on a specific date. If you add an End date, the coupon can no longer be used after that date. You can edit this after the fact if you need to!Add Free Shipping: If this option is selected, your client will also get Free Shipping in addition to the discount set for this coupon.
Promote with coupon banner: add a message that will be displayed on the applicable collections for the discount! Learn more (hyperlink to full article).
If you’re using an Amount Off coupon code, you will have the option to decide if the Discount applies to…:
Each item individually: your client will receive the dollar amount off of each item in their cart. For example, if you are offering a $5 off coupon, this would apply a $5 off discount to each 4 x 6 Print in their cart. If they have 5 4 x 6 Prints in their cart, they would save $25 on their order.
Combined total: your client will receive the dollar amount off of the total for the 4 x 6 Print in their cart - so they would save a total of $5, instead of $5 off each of the 4 x 6 Prints - no matter how many prints are in their cart.
Note: if you have provided your client with a coupon code that discounts their Order below the Lab's Cost of Goods, any remaining Cost of Goods charged will be charged directly to your credit card on file.
