How to use time-based discounts with Freshly Inventory
The Simple Discounts app and Freshly Inventory can work together to help you provide discounts on your products based on their expiry date. This can be especially useful for products that have a limited shelf life, such as food or beauty products.
Here's how to use Simple Discounts with Freshly Inventory:
- Go to the Preferences page in Freshly Inventory.
- In the Preferences page, look for the "Expiry Date on Storefront" section.
- Under the "Expiry Date on Storefront" section, make sure the option "Enable display of expiry dates on product pages" is enabled.
- This will add the expiry date of the product to the
freshlynamespace and the
expiry_datekey. The expiry date will automatically be updated to the most recent expiry date for the product variant.
- Once the expiry date has been added to your product variants in Freshly, you can create a time-based automatic or code discount in Simple Discounts.
- To create a discount, specify the discount percentage and choose the "days before/after" option in Simple Discounts. If you choose "days before", the discount will be applied to the product before its expiry date. If you choose "days after", the discount will be applied to the product after its expiry date.
- If you choose to create a code discount, make sure to share the code with your customers. They will need to enter the code at checkout to receive the discount.
By using Simple Discounts and Freshly Inventory together, you can offer discounts on your products based on their expiry date and make the most of your inventory. If you have any questions or need further assistance, please contact the Simple Discounts app support team.
