Shopify discount codes can be redeemed using Discount Ninja's cart promotion code field.
Discount Ninja's cart promotion code field supports:
Percentage discount codes
Fixed amount discount codes
Free shipping discount codes
BOGO discount codes
How does it work?
Discount Ninja looks up discount codes and understands how to apply those discount codes to the cart. The app also ensures the codes are passed on to the checkout and automatically applied at checkout.
There are two ways Shopify discount codes can be applied:
Without a wrapper promotion: default settings, no building blocks
With a wrapper promotion: more control, building blocks available
Without a wrapper promotion
Redeeming a code that is not included in a wrapper promotion (see below) results in the following:
Discount Ninja will use standard rules (see below) to determine if the code should be interpreted as product-level or order-level
No building blocks will be displayed
Dynamic Pricing will be applied
By default, Shopify discount codes are interpreted as being order-level by Discount Ninja when they apply to all products. Shopify discount codes that are specific to a (set of) product(s) or collection(s) are considered product-level by default.
This behavior can be overridden, for all Shopify discount codes, in Settings > Shopify discount codes > In the cart:
If you need more control, consider using a wrapper promotion (see below).
With a wrapper promotion
If a customer redeems a Shopify discount code that is part of a "wrapper" Discount Ninja promotion, then the rules of that promotion apply.
To set up a "wrapper" promotion, choose the "Visitors who redeem a Shopify discount code" intended audience when creating an offer:
There are three different offer templates for Shopify discount code wrappers:
Each of the Shopify discount code wrapper offer templates are meant to configure a promotion that is triggered when a Shopify discount code is redeemed via the Discount Ninja cart promotion code field.
These offer templates:
Ensure the discount code is automatically applied to the checkout
Allow you to define if the offer should be considered product-level or order-level
Allow you to configure building blocks (sticky bar, notification...) to communicate the offer to your customers
Allow you to show discounted prices in the product pages, collection pages and cart pages using Dynamic Pricing
The first template is used if you want to create a wrapper for a specific code. The second template is used if you want to create a wrapper for all codes in a specific discount code group (typically a group of codes generated by another app) and the last template is used to create a wrapper for all codes that have been generated by a specific app (typically email or loyalty related).
