We hope you're currently rushed off your feet with the final flurry of Christmas shopping, but the fun is not over yet! It will soon be time for those Boxing Day and January Sales, so now is a good time to start thinking about if you will host a sale on your website.
Did you know that having a sale is a great way to entice customers into your shop... you never know what they might leave with! Customers love to see fresh new ideas for things to buy and if you're limited on space, a sale is a good way to clear out some of your existing stock and make room for the new!
Customers with their Christmas money will be aplently, so get ready to bring them back to your store and entice them to buy with some great bargains and deals!
Our handy new Shop Sale feature means you can start preparing your sale now behind the scenes, this means you can just switch it on when you are ready to launch and your customers will see the new prices instantly.
In addition to this, for our Pro Seller Plus members you can manage up to 3 sales at one time. This means when one sale ends you can be ready to run another sale straight away!
|To start preparing your Sale, login to your Create account and then take the following steps:
There are different ways to discount your products, you can choose a fixed amount - i.e. £10 off, a percentage reduction - i.e. 20%, or you can set a fixed new price i.e. was £4.99 now £3.99. You create the rule, and then add the products which you want to apply to that rule. You'll need to make a new rule for each combination of discount type and amount (you can set up as many as you like) and then add the products you want to each one.
Don't forget to check out our recent Shop Sale video webinar which gives you a visual guide on how to get set up.
We hope you enjoy using this new feature, let us know about the sales you are running with it and how you are getting on, using the "Add A Comment" link below :)
