Getting Started with Simple Discounts

Welcome to the Simple Discounts! This app allows you to create and apply discounts to your product variants within your Shopify store. This guide will walk you through the process of creating and applying a time-base discount with a single tier.


  • A Shopify store
  • The Simple Discounts app installed in your store
  • A product with a variant that you would like to apply a discount to

Step by Step Guide

1. Log into your Shopify store and navigate to the Discounts page.

2. Click on the "Create discount" button to create a new discount.

3. In the discount creation form, select Automatic discounts with a title. Specify the discount percentage (e.g. 50% off). Set the start date of the discount to the days before the product expiry date you would like to discount the product (e.g. 60 days before).

4. In the Shopify settings, navigate to the metafield definition section under variant and create a new metafield definition for the "date field" for product variant discounts. Refer to this help doc for more information: How to Manually Set Expiry Dates for Shopify Products and Apply Discounts

5. Go to the product variant you would like to apply the discount to. In the variant details, set the value of the "date field" metafield you defined earlier to the current date, which should be within the "day before" defined in step 3 and today's date.

6. Add the product variant to your cart and verify that the discount has been correctly applied to the variant. The discount value set in step 3 should be reflected in the cart and the final price of the product should be reduced by the specified amount.
