Using Rules With The Shop Sale Feature

An important factor in running a sale is deciding how you are going to discount your products. There are several different ways you can add discounts and these are referred to as “Rules”.

If all of your products are a similar price, you may wish to simply add a fixed price discount or a price reduction. If your shop prices differ from each other, you may wish to set up a percentage reduction.

Please follow the steps below for more information on setting up rules:

1. To set up a rule, go through the "How To Run A Sale In Your Shop" process and then select the "Add Sale Rule" button.

2. In the new window you will see a drop-down list with the title "Type". This refers to the type of rule you wish to set for your sale. These are as follows:

Fixed Price

This rule will allow you to set a fixed price that you want to apply to your selected products. You will need to enter the price you want all the products in this rule to be in the “Amount” field.

Percentage reduction

This rule will allow you to reduce the price of your product by a percentage, so if you would like all your products in this rule to be reduced by 20% you will need to enter “20” in the “Amount” field.

Price reduction

This rule allows you to deduct a set amount off the selected products. For example, you could use this rule to reduce all products by £5.00. You would do this by entering “5.00” in the “Amount” field.

3. Once you have added your rules, you will then need to select the necessary products that you wish to be part of your sale. You can do this simply by clicking on each product that you wish to be part of your sale and then clicking "Add Product". For help with this see our guide "How Do I Add Products To A Sale".

4. You have now created your sale and you will be able to see it listed on your main "Shop Sale" page. In order to put your sale live, simply click on the switch to the left of the pencil icon.
