Tips for Simplifying the Discount Process on Shopify

When creating a percentage discount on your bulk offers, focus on products that customers tend to buy together or in large quantities. Regularly review your sales and inventory data to identify top-selling products and adjust bulk pricing accordingly. This helps you meet your customers' changing needs.

Specifically, be sure to:

  • Analyze sales and inventory data regularly to see which products sell well versus those that don't.
  • Use these insights to tweak bulk discounts on an ongoing basis. Respond swiftly when customer behavior and preferences shift.
  • Make data-driven decisions to optimize bulk pricing for increased sales and customer satisfaction.
  • Keep a close eye on store analytics so you can adapt quickly as needs change.


Tools like Egnition's Auto Rewards Toolkit app can help automate part of this process by generating tailored discounts based on each customer's order history. This app generates customizable emails that can be sent with a single click.

This streamlines the bulk discount process for merchants while enhancing the shopping experience for customers. If you're not sure whether this app is the right choice for you, try it out with a 7-day free trial before committing.
