Discount Manager allows you to create sales in your web store at a scheduled time. Now you don't need to change price for each product and spend a lot of your time, as with a help of this app you can automate this process!
How it works
If you would like to put any of your products on sale, then all you need to do is to indicate these products by using the app, set up a size of discount (fixed or percent of the product’s price) and sale period (date and time to start and stop sale). The app automatically creates discount prices at indicated time, even so the original prices will be saved as the “Retail Price” and won’t be changed. Retail price will be shown on your web store, crossed out. Generally, it's used to show customers that your product is cheaper than the normal retail price and will be displayed like this one:
Retail Price: $25.95
Your Price: $19.95 (You save $6.00)
When the time of sale is over, the app automatically runs through your web store again and deletes discount prices (i.e. delete retail prices) leaving original initial prices.
No more coupons required to start your promotions and sales!
Additional possibilities of Discount Manager app
When you create product discount on the app "Discount Manager", you have a possibility to choose the option "Create on your store hidden duplicates of the product(s) selected". It means that you can create copies of selected products and apply discount only to the copies which are without change of prices for original products.
This option is useful while using the app "Discount Manager" together with the app Unlimited Upsell. For instance, you want to propose to "buy one, get one 50% off" or "buy one, get one free" deals, which can be created with a help of the app Unlimited Upsell. It means that if customer buys any product, the second one can be purchased as an incentive at half price or even can be given free of charge on the whole. Of course, you would not like to change the price of your original second product, as this is not your goal to sale products at the price which is twice lower in comparison with the original or even sale it free of charge to all customers. In order to circumvent this you can create a copy of such a product and hide it on the web store. Accordingly this discount will be available only to certain customers. Besides, this feature excludes these hidden products from search results on your web store, in this way you can be absolutely sure that they won't be found by the people who are not supposed to see such products.
