If you're selling items in Shopify, you likely want to add a sale tag to your products. Although there are a few different ways to do this, we'll show you how to add tags for selling items using Shopify's built-in features.

Adding a Sale Tag in Shopify

First things first, let's tackle how to add a sale tag in Shopify. Once you're done adding products to Shopify, you can easily add a sale tag to your store to let everyone know that you're offering discounts. Here's how:

  1. Log into your Shopify account and, from the admin page, click on Products.
  2. Select the product you'd like to set a sale price on.
  3. From the product's page, scroll down to the pricing section.
  4. Here, you will see two pricing options—Price on the left and Compare at Price on the right. To set a sale price, take the original price from the Price text box and paste it into the Compare at Price box.
  5. Now, enter the sale price you wish to set for the product into the Price text box.
  6. Then, click the Save button.

To double-check that the sale tag has worked, click View at the top of the product page. Here you will see the original sale price with a strike-through line and the new sale price next to it highlighted in red.
